BA (Hons) Fine Art
Memory and identity cross over quite frequently within artworks, which can in turn make the work become quite personal to individual artists. Alysha Fisk uses these themes to explore their own memory and identity, primarily using places that are familiar and have a personal meaning to them as their main focus. This is shown through an individual choice on focusing on how a place can evoke a memory, which can also invoke a part in your identity, in recognising the person you have developed into.
Print is Fisk’s main process of working, using photo etchings the size of a photograph to mimic the original photo they have taken of the location of choice. This is shown through Fisk’s use of collages and editing them to create an image, which may seem confused or not right in some way, as it is designed to evoke a mixed-up memory, as if they can remember the place but not completely, as the work is in pieces rather than a full image.
