The artistic research of Alice Browne is aimed at the organization of pictorial structures and sculptural objects that expand the discussion of the connection between individual, past and social forces within the real and mental space. Using the visual ploy of the rock-paper-scissors and then exploiting the symbols that animate the essence of the game, Browne broadens the discussion of the me- aning of images and structures that surround the human being, explaining its fragility and instability and at the same time its durability and strength. Associations and meanings collide in unexpected forms, as well as the evidence of the solidity of the rock, beaten in the rock-paper-scissors game, by the fragile paper. And the game is still to offer similarities between the mimicked gestures of the hands and the symbols of revolt or coercion that they can represent. The artist's research opens a chapter on the power relations between different social forms that are the basis of the relationship between groups of individuals. The forms and functions of power and authority, from the Neolithic until the early industrial revolution to the present day, have continuously changed, so much so that in recent decades capitalism, nation-states and globalization have helped to create new sources of con ict in the masses which in fact resulted in anger and revolution in various parts of the globe. Such contrasts are the basis of conflicts between individuals and ideologies, meanings that create symbols, synthesized for Browne in scissors, paper and rock.
