ARTmonday: Alicia Savage’s Self-Portraits

By Stylecarrot @StyleCarrot

I am totally smitten with the work of Boston-based artist Alicia Savage, who specializes in self-portraits. A graduate of Northeastern University, Savage returned to school at Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts for training in photography. Savage describes her self-portraits, which are atmospheric, imaginative, and at times surreal, as “an organic exploration and evolving documentation of her present and past.”

Gabrielle Schaffner, who organizes Fort Point Open Studios (the next one is May 15-17) here in Boston, first pointed out Alicia Savage’s work to me, correctly guessing I’d love it. I love it so much that I’ve reached out to her and I am excited to say that I will be hanging one of Alicia Savage’s self-portraits in the model apartment I am decorating at the new Troy Boston building in the South End.

I am deciding between the first and the second one below for the space. I’d also love to purchase one. For all the images of women in fields and levitating women in post here, I only own one similar photograph. That must change. If you happen to be in Bogota next month, Alicia Savage’s self-portraits will be exhibited in the International Bienniel Photo Bogota 2015. From the looks of it, I am about to discover a whole bunch of new artists to showcase here. You can find other, similar images on my Female Figures in Art board on Pinterest too.
