About the Artist

“It is likely that the ‘inner world’ of our Western psychological experience  originates in the loss of our ancestral reciprocity with the animate earth” 

                    -   David Abram, The Spell of the Sensuous, 1996

 

Atelier trained ‘NOA’ Artist Alyson graduated with a First Class BA Hons in Fine Art and a Master of Arts.  Alyson studied Fine Art in Manchester, England and the ARC Atelier of Fine Art in Edinburgh, Scotland. 

 

Broad creative concerns embrace themes of human existence, our spiritual connection to the land, the well documented degradation of forests and ancient woodlands and society’s increasing disconnection with the natural world … despite our ultimate destiny … to once again become part of nature itself.  

 

Creative practice is based in both art historical and contemporary art theory, fusing and integrating graphite, oils and new media with collodion. Extensive glazing and layering of colour reflects the timelessness of the natural world.  

 

As a member of the ‘Artists and Alchemists’ movement, Alyson also works with the almost forgotten chemical techniques of the early hand made photography pioneers, including the Wet Plate Collodion and Daguerreotype processes. These historic processes capture the dark, silent mystery of landscapes which are slow to give up their secrets.

 

Alyson’s work is exhibited internationally, including shows in Manchester, London, Europe, New York City, and the USA.
