Clitoris(Atlantis) Spray Paint And Pen on Paper 70x100cm 2020 Since 2012 Alaric’s portrayed hand-drawn illustrations in geometric forms that have been influenced by something he finds fascinating in the world; such as tribal symbols, ancient alphabets, symbols of belief and the beauty of the natural world. Alaric feels art should be aesthetically pleasing and also convey deeper thought. Statement My artwork is geometric, informative, flamboyant, playful and direct. I use my knowledge and research of the world by creating visuals that have roots in semiotics. Creating art that is eye-pleasing and thought-provoking is something I find inherent. I toy with the idea of perfection in the technological era by creating pieces with my hands. This can be a difficult challenge at times as there can be moments where I want to erase all pencil marks, or rid the process of the finished drawing. However, this is a personal challenge and one that reminds myself and the viewer that perfect ideals can still portray machine-like qualities even when done this way.
