Alison Postma’s Photography Hones in on the Mundane and Familiar

Postma plays with the idea of displacement through the creation of emotive images depicting static forms. She has an enduring interest in our unconscious relationships to the spaces we exist in.

Alison Postma is a Canadian artist whose work is concentrated in photographic and sculptural media. She grew up in suburban Southern Ontario, a setting which influenced her interest in the seemingly banal. She is currently finishing her final semester of undergraduate studies in studio art at the University of Guelph, where she was selected as one of three recipients of the 2015 AIMIA | AGO Photography Prize Scholarship.

Alison Postma’s photographic eye often turns its gaze to the mundane and familiar. Her images destabilize familiar space through reference to dreams and other non-physical spaces. Postma plays with the idea of displacement through the creation of emotive images depicting static forms. She has an enduring interest in our unconscious relationships to the spaces we exist in.
