An early chance to buy a unique piece by our next exhibiting artist; the super talented and creative Alison Stockmarr.

Alison is a materials-led artist and currently she creates Face Books, a collection of work poking fun at Facebook. By matching old photographs with suitably titled books, profiles are constructed, creating a library of invented friends of yesteryear. Apertures are cut into books, with photos and ephemera collaged within their pages. Appropriate, and sometimes inappropriate, narratives are composed to complete the picture! I hope you ‘like’ them.

We haven’t yet confirmed the date of Alison’s exhibition but it will be sometime this Spring and take place in our Barnes store. If you’d like to attend and meet Alison, please email [email protected] to be added to our invitees list.
Described as a “latter-day borrower”, Alison’s work has an empathy for storytelling and recycling. ‘Treasure hunting’ is very much a part of the alchemical process. This, coupled with her deft abilities at re-appropriation, is at the heart of her work. Lost and overlooked objects are put under scrutiny, distilled into scenarios that allude to the past, with a playful nod to the present. Seemingly worthless finds are reworked breathing a new beauty back into them.
