Alison Stockmarr’s work has an ethos of recycling and storytelling at its heart. Described as a ‘latter day borrower’, she hunts for unloved and overlooked objects. Using wit and pathos, she scrutinises her finds breathing a renewed beauty back into them. Currently she creates ‘Face Books’, a collection of work that pokes fun at Facebook. By matching old photographs with suitably titled books profiles are constructed, creating a library of invented friends of yesteryear. Apertures are cut into books, with photographs and ephemera collaged within their pages. Alison has exhibited her work extensively through art fairs and galleries across the UK since 2000.
