Alyson Provax is an artist living in Portland, Oregon. She is interested in loneliness, uncertainty and memory. She uses the tools of printmaking, and her work has been described as “printmaking disinterested in the perfection based traditions that exist as a form of exclusion.” She often uses repetition as a drawing tool rather than to make multiple originals, and calls into question the certainty of a text with its visual presentation.
She has shown regionally at Archer Gallery, Carnation Contemporary, Wolff Gallery, Upfor Gallery, Bridge Productions, The Vestibule and the Whatcom Museum, nationally at A.I.R. Gallery and The Untitled Space in New York, and internationally at the Blueproject Foundation in Barcelona.
