Photography, Untapped, Booth U-5
Alison Postma graduated from the University of Guelph’s studio art program in 2016 and is now based in Toronto. Her work has focused on themes of perception in dreams and ideas of the future from the past. Most recently her practice has focused on physically getting to know objects. In a studio setting, objects are examined and arranged with other objects in a still life to be photographed, paying close attention to texture and colour. In video work, the artist performs futile gestures with objects in an effort to understand them. In sculptural pieces, found objects are added to or modified to create something almost recognizable.
