Artist Statement

Alyson is an interdisciplinary artist who combines practices of design, poetry, printmaking, and textile arts. Building an intuitive process, Alyson explores memory, trauma, healing, and is interested in how stories encompass what’s told and what’s untold, what’s covered up and what’s taken away, and how we are left to speculate about the unspoken. Alyson combines blackout poetry, created from the foundation of Black women writers, with archival and personal photographs to make sense of personal experience. These stories are stitched together and reused in different pieces as a means to explore how narratives evolve through time as well as how context changes meaning.
