Over the past year, Alice Alder has focused on the meaning of place and home. Exploring painting in different locations around the South West, she has captured the sense of a lost longing to find home in the unconventional sense. For Alder, "my personal journey is to find where my home is in the ever-changing environment". Alder's personal journey is to find where her home is in the ever-changing environment. The places she grew up in are no longer there; housing developments now pollutes her childhood memories. In this exhibition, Alder explores the question: "can I still find a sense of belonging in a place that is more a memory than tangible?"
