The exhibition, Plaster, Parquet & Pillars, will run from Sunday 15th to Saturday 21st April, open every day from 12 noon until 4pm, at the Fermoy Gallery in the Arts Centre complex in King Street.
Inspired by the surrealist ideas of the chance encounter and the found object, Alison works in a way that is fundamentally materials-led. Her aim is to let the texture, shape and function of the object respond in some way to those objects around it. Some objects are left as found and some changed for impact. There is an element of play.
Alison says “I owe a lot to Kandinsky and his ideas of dynamic and static form and to the poetry of objects in Joseph Cornell’s Boxes. I am enjoying the discipline and the disordering of geometry in abstraction.”
The exhibition will support the work of the Purfleet Trust, which provides help and relief to homeless people in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk. Alison will donate 15% of all sales at the exhibition to the Trust.
