Artist Statement

I see my paintings as illusory abstract landscapes where the landscape emerges as an imagined place, or the in-between space that connects memory and place rather than representing somewhere specific. Through layers of various marks and veils of paint I hope to build an image that cannot be understood in a simple glance. The various paint marks aren’t representative of anything in particular. Instead, like points on a map they guide toward the memory of a place and will resonate differently for each person that encounters them. - Alizon Gray


Alizon has been a finalist in numerous art prizes including the Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize, ANL Mission to Seafarers Prize, Musswellbrook Art Prize, and mCollection Award. Recent exhibitions include 'heart of snow' at Michael Reid Gallery, ‘seeking silence’ at Boom Gallery, and ‘slippery slope’ at Sawtooth. Her work has been included in many group exhibitions, most recently, ‘Winter’ at Fenton & Fenton, ‘Goodbye Hello’ at CAVES, and ‘Dusk till Dawn‘ at Saint Cloche. She has work in private collections in Australia, New Zealand, England, USA, Canada, Germany, and Switzerland.

Alizon lives and works in Northcote, Melbourne Australia.  She lives with her husband, illustrator Simon O'Carrigan and Bill their very chilled, floufy grey rescue cat.
