Aliki Braine’s work is interested in exploring the physical nature of photographic images and the debt photography owes to the history of western European painting.
Often cutting, folding, drawing with ink, punching holes or overlaying her negatives with adhesive labels, Braine violates the pristine surface of the photograph forcing the viewer to acknowledge the photograph as an object and the image as a construct and opening up a new understanding of the photographic process.
Braine’s practice is heavily informed by her work and research as an art historian working on the history of seventeenth century landscape painting.
Braine’s work is regularly exhibited in the UK and internationally, including Musée d'art de Pully (Lausanne), Kulturni Centar (Belgrade), Galerie Raum mit Licht (Vienna), Galerie Magda Danysz (Paris), Museum of Electricity (Lisbon), Flowers East, Jerwood Gallery and Man & Eve Gallery (all London).
