“...Keogh’s work brings to mind both the spontaneity of the Abstract Expressionist painters and the geometric rigor of Donald Judd.” - Ann Landi, ARTnews Magazine July 2012
“ I collaborate with uncertainty and work with both stillness and immediacy. Intuition, awareness, my breath, body and repetitive gestures are constant processes I use to reveal my experiences that have settled and compressed with time.”
Alison Keogh earned her architectural degree and completed a masters program at Kingston University, London. Formerly an architect, her artistic practice embraces repetitive and contemplative processes as a way of collaborating with natural materials. While adhering to an underlying structural premise of modernist forms her work emanates an organic sensibility. Keogh’s work has been exhibited internationally as well as nationally in solo and group exhibitions. In 2012 she exhibited at the Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe, and attended an artist residency at Fundacion Valpariso, Spain. She was represented by William Siegal Gallery, Santa Fe for five years until the closure of contemporary program in 2017. Alison exhibited at Gallery Moris, Kobe, Japan in the spring of 2018. Her work appears in NationalPoetryMonth.ca 2019.
