Alec ThibodeauAmerican, b. 1972
Alec Thibodeau uses intricate lines to generate works on paper. Whether as drawings or prints, his pieces incorporate imagery from the natural world — animals, plants, people — and suggest a narrative beyond the single image.
For his work in drawing and printmaking Thibodeau has been the recipient of project grants from the LEF Foundation and the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts. He is currently designing a permanent public art installation at a site in New York City through the City of New York Department of Cultural Affairs Percent for Art Program. This piece is scheduled for completion in late autumn 2014.
Thibodeau graduated from Bowdoin College in 1994 with an A.B. in Studio Art and Philosophy. He has exhibited his work in New York, Chicago, Boston, Tallahassee, Birmingham and in Providence at the RISD Museum. He currently lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island.
