Alison Edmonds studied Fine Art at Psalter Lane in Sheffield gaining a First Degree in 1981. Her formative years were spent in Manchester but she has produced Art-work in London and Yorkshire. The artist has exhibited in British and European galleries and her work features in private collections.
The work, often large in scale, is linked by recurring images and ideas which progress and develop organically. They are shaped by the contemplation of the notion of timeless order existing amongst the entropy of an ever-changing world.
Banal, prosaic situations and experiences are collated and connected through personal responses in paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures and installations. These acutely introspective observations explore mundane and overlooked surroundings, expressed through a personal vocabulary of mythology and revelation. Given or found materials and objects often act as starting points gaining new significance by re-forming, redistribution or repositioning.
‘As an artist I often work in projects or series and during the process discover some sort of place in the world. Work often begins as a fixed point which branches out and produces new fixed points. Sometimes they return to an idea which then gains more substance over time. These points can become more powerful with experience or obsession."
