Alice Toomer is a Wellington based artist who produces photorealistic acrylic paintings of food.
Alice’s work gives life to decadent flavours and preserves the fleeting moment before the subject is either consumed or decayed. Through her delicate rendering of textures, use of rich colours and monumental compositions, Alice's paintings evoke a sensory experience that elicits a longing for a specific taste and time. Her work explores the intersects between indulgence and consumerism, and creates a space for reflection on the role of food as a complex social and cultural pillar of our existence.
Alice Toomer began painting at the age of 12 and has since exhibited her work in various solo exhibitions and group shows across New Zealand. She has won a number of People’s Choice awards and been an invited Guest Artist in shows around the South Island, close to her hometown of Dunedin. Her work has been showcased in print publications and features in private collections around the world.
Alice holds a Bachelor of Creative Media Production and works on local commercial and feature film productions outside of her painting work.
Alice Toomer is the daughter of acclaimed New Zealand landscape painter John Toomer.
Alice Toomer produces hyper-realist paintings that joyfully capture the sweet side of life.
