97% Alice is a painting series based on the results of trying to research and collect inspiration from New York painter Alice Neel. The images, from an Ebook which was downloaded via a torrent program on the internet, are then painted onto canvas (analogue copy-paste). Having few seeders, the Ebook sat at 97% in the download cue for almost two years until being forced to open, albeit incomplete. The paintings displayed with the jpegs attempt a visual discourse regarding the often undervalued appreciation of the female painter of the 1900’s in the still male dominated art world.
