Alicia Barton is a multi-disciplinary artist with her primary focus in sculpture. She explores the paradox between attraction and repulsion to interrogate her self identity and psyche. She draws influence from the gothic aesthetic, horror movies, and investigations of personal life moments. Alicia currently lives and works in Albany with her two kittens while she attends the University at Albany where she is a current MFA candidate.
