Alison Day - Painting, Drawing and Photography
I am a practicing artist producing Analogue Black and White Photographs , Botanical Drawings, and Watercolours. My photographic work reflects an interest in the landscape :- natural, social and political . My work documents my experience of ‘my being in’ and ‘my reaction to’ the landscape .
My botanical work reflects a knowledge and love for wild and cultivated plants. It examines the work in detail in order to represent the plant as it is and experienced.
Photographs are the document of 30 years of looking and searching the coasts in Northumberland and the political upheaval in London, as well as developing a unique mixture of botanical Photograms which are hand coloured
I work to commission and exhibit regularly. as well as teaching photography and botanical illustration in my studio.
