Alison Jardine

Region: West

I juxtapose traditional drawing and painting materials with building materials and postproduction items, all with an interest in the friction between natural and constructed environments, and our place within them. My work has been described as “postminimalist pop,” which reflects my interest in the simplicity and power of reductive geometric forms contrasted with the fragility or brutality of materials and fabrics from the everyday world.

Urban Flora are cement casts of plastic bags I find in urban and suburban creeks, snagged on branches and rocks, like flowers in the new “Anthropocene” era.
