Alabama Blonde is a designer, creative director, musician and artist currently living and working in Melbourne, Australia. She has watched the Addams Family at least a thousand times, owes Siouxsie Sioux her first born and learnt to dance via old Iggy and the Stooges videos.
Alabama’s work lends itself towards an exploration of identity, rituals and human experience. Recently her work has asked the question ‘Can we embed emotion into fabric?’ Articulating the juxtaposition of extreme constriction vs extreme release via an exploration of both materiality and emotion.
In her work, Alabama hopes to be brave, provocative, poignant and authentic. War Pigs is her favourite record, David Lynch is her dream collaboration, she lives by the phases of the moon and the Charles Bukowski quote “Find what you love and let it kill you.”
