During her graduate studies at Hunter College, Alice Aycock began to forge links between personal and more inclusive subject matter and form. In her quest for contemporary monuments, Aycock wrote her Master’s thesis on U.S. highway systems. Aycock’s large environmental sculptures create intense psychological atmospheres. Although she uses primitive rites and architecture as sources, her implementation of contemporary materials removes those specific connotations. More recently, Aycock has begun collaborating with architects, installing site-specific works upon pre-existing or newly planned structures.
