Alyson Barton Artist Bio 

Atelier trained artist Alyson has a First Class BA (Hons) in Fine Art and a Master of Arts. Her creative practice is based in art historical and contemporary art theory. Alyson’s creative practice has long explored the relationship between spiritual belief systems and the human condition.  Through her most recent work, Alyson reflects upon contemporary man’s increasing disconnection with the natural environment, despite humanity’s deep ancestral relationship with the land and our ultimate destiny … to become part of nature itself.


Landscapes are captured through the historic Wet Plate Collodion process used by the masters of the 19th century, and integrated with new media to produce artworks which are hybrids of photography, painting and sculpture.   Some pieces are dark, silent and nostalgic, reflecting the primitive mystery of landscapes which are slow to give up their secrets.


Alyson’s work has been exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally, including venues in Manchester, Liverpool, London, Stockholm and the USA.
