Alison Hand

Page 1 | 2 | Biography


Alison Handís work is concerned with the representation and identity of place, and the power relations articulated through particular visions of landscape. Her paintings - situated somewhere between landscape and abstraction - slide between slicks of gloss and spray, baroque detail and collage, interweaving a building site topography with the structures and follies of classical landscape painting.

Through each painting, Hand prises a gap between promise and reality Ė spaces in flux, invested with utopianist idealism, but somewhere characterized by displacement and fantasy. By repositioning the landscape as a site of transition and deconstruction, she deterritorialises the 'picturesque' and refocuses the act of painting as record, fiction, memory, and exaggeration.

Hand holds an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art and is a published writer on art and architecture. She has exhibited in Germany, Hong Kong, London, and across the UK. Her work has won numerous awards including the Basil H Alkazzi Scholarship; the Gordon Luton Award for Fine Art; and the Stephenson Harwood Award
