Alichia van Rhijn

Alichia Van Rhijn

Alichia van Rhijn is a South African born Australian artist with a background in architecture and design. Alichia’s sculptures catalogue her experience of displacement through material investigation, where memory and place are key elements. “Making as thinking” paired with an experimental approach to process and technology underpins the creation of objects that float between the real and a child-like whimsical world that elicits an urge to interact and play.

“Forms investigate phenomenological notions, alluding to personal and shared experience, memory, nostalgia and trauma. Through the use of distilled minimalist forms, symbolic and ritualistic totems are presented, hoping to initiate pause and contemplation.” Artist statement.

Alichia holds a Bachelor of Fine Art (Ceramics) from The National Art School and has a passion for creating sculptural and installation-based objects and forms that examine memory, trace, trauma, experience and loss. Solo shows include; ‘A Sense Of Being’, Gallerysmith (2019); ‘The Middle Distance’, Boom Gallery (2019); ‘My Mother Told Me (Never Wear Pink And Red Together)’, Stockroom Kyneton (2020); ‘Smoke Signals’, Stockroom Kyneton (2021); ‘Lemon Light’ at Sabbia Gallery (2022): and most recently ‘Pink Moon’ at Stockroom Kyneton (2023).
