Expanding from a notion of symmetry, which often conjures contemplation and stillness, and a muted palette of woodgrain surfaces evoking a natural, timeless aesthetic, No-Self Mandala introduces the unexpected – a young girl’s form, a piece of neon-orange crochet, elements of text – to bring about a sense of surprise.
Alison Eddy explores the idea that through dissolving our individual boundaries of ‘self’ we can invoke a stillness, allowing life to move through us to create a sense of connected spaciousness. Alison says through elevating the unexpected she wants to acknowledge that it is not only in ritual or meditative spaces that we fine-tune our practice but also in the everyday.
Alison Eddy says her artistic practice often celebrates natural form and philosophical thought and is inspired by her inquiry into Buddhism. She feels drawn to describe the felt sense of the values she encounters and wants to bring a visceral sense of what arises and allows her to stay in the questions longer. Her art pushes the boundaries of digital and commercial techniques and reclaims them to allow long-held belief systems to resonate in the modern world. Alison’s studio is the Royal Forest of Dean, UK.
