An emerging artist showcase of work by photographic artist Alison Baker Kerrigan is on view at Tallaght Hospital until 31 January 2014. Alison is a photographic artist living and working in Dublin having graduated with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Photography from IADT – Dun Laoghaire in 2012. Drawing on inspiration from personal relationships and the experiential she utilises the familiarisation of the subject matter to encourage the viewer to engage with the narrative of her photographs. Her comprehensive aim is to deliver an honest, in-depth and far-reaching portrayal of the narrative involved. Her insatiable curiosity in all things photographic has also led her to create images using 19th Century Alternative Processes such as Cyanotype, Van Dyke and Wet Plate Collodian techniques.
This showcase features excerpts from various fine art projects with broad reaching themes such as Legacy & the Landscape, Colonialism, a conceptual representation of a Cancer Journey, an Advertising Campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness and examples of 19th Century Photographic Processes.
Work includes a small abstract representation from the overall series of an artistic conceptual response to a journey through cancer(full series can be seen on website www.abkphotography.com) as well as ‘STOP LOOK CHECK’ a series of images which provoke dialogue and debate around more traditional breast cancer awareness imagery.
