Returning to live on the island after nearly forty years of living and working in London, marked a significant shift in the emphasis of Alison's work.
While in London her work was about remembering the landscape that she grew up in, now she is immersed in it. The move also consolidated a development in her practice that had slowly been taking place before her return. A development away from using film, video and large scale multi screen site specific projections, to using clay, paint and found materials to make small scale 3D work.
Recent work has focused on making pots and clay surfaces that have been gently shaped and manipulated. They are then used for drawing, painting and multi layering of glazes. The pieces are usually reglazed and fired several times resulting in abstracted images that are a response to a specific location but not specific in their rendering.
Alison work has been shown both in the UK and overseas.
