Alison Bernal

Alison Bernal’s work typically plays with shape and form using architectural source material.
She uses a number of techniques to explore the tension between the two-dimensional form of printmaking and her three-dimensional imagery. This line of inquiry began with an investigation of Piranesi’s Carceri prints and developed to use the architectural elements of modern buildings.
Recent work begins to explore colour as well as tone using opaque layers of Japanese papers, each printed surface altering the one beneath.
She trained at Middlesex University and Goldsmiths’ College and continued her studies in printmaking at Morley College.
