Alix Edwards is a multi-platform artist who uses fiction, spoken word, painting and photography to tell untold stories about motherhood, loss, domestic violence and resilience. Her work gives a voice to primarily to women and children who society has failed or not listened to. It also restores life, energy and emotion to statistics.

Alix Edwards is an emerging multi-platform artist who combines photography, painting, text, installation spoken word to give a voice to disempowered women. Her work explores untold histories, domestic violence, resilience, loss and shame.

“A survivor of domestic violence, I have used photography to highlight situations where legislation has failed those women it is supposed to protect. I use numbers and scientific images as a starting point. Giant child-like canvases remember 29 children murdered during compulsory contact visits. Timed, candle-lit huge giant paintings, ‘Bodyflows’, re-invigorate MRI scans. Eyes shut, I mix paint on canvas; use stories, poems, my fingertips to create new narratives. Instagram series 104 locks highlights 2 women killed per week in England and Wales by domestic violence., Fallen, recently exhibited at g39 in Cardiff explores the etymology of the verb to fall with regard to women with a life-size woman falling from heaven like a space plunging into the sea and the other side of sex and on becoming a real woman currently being exhibited at Sexology in Los Angeles challenge society’s double standards when it comes to women and sex.”

“WoMen and Men”, Alix’s first solo exhibition at a dedicated gallery space in Wales, explores different aspects of womanhood in the 20th and 21st Century.
