Biographical Information
Alison Yip ~ [21st century] Canadian
see artist's website alisonyip.blogspot.com

Alison Yip works through painting, wall treatments, writing and objects to find ways of speaking to the dissociative and dispersed nature of our cognitive apparatus and the persistence of figuration, especially through psycho-phenomena: Tulpamancy, pareidolia and sleep paralysis. Recurring actors and everyday objects charged with animism appear in her works and are put to the task of "figuring out." Playful use of various pictorial modes, everyday materials and perspectival regimes, generate explorations into broader experiences of the human senses, power relations and sense of self, accumulating into a type of "cursed figuration." Recently, she worked with two psychics to determine two different visions of the future for herself, including what materials to work with in her practice and how her relationship would be with her current gallerist.
