Aamora Featured Artist August 2012

{When I Grow Up I Want To Be An Old Woman by Alison Cronin}

Chasing time, we see the echoes of our own pasts and futures in the faces of others.

The skin we inhabit is not just our own, it is cast off from those who preceded us, and borrowed from those who follow.

Aamora featured artist Alison Cronin explores movement through both space and time as a form of communication. Using images sourced from photographs, from the present day dating back to the nineteenth century, and a variety of media and techniques.

Her latest body of work is based on the faces and lives of a handful of generations within her own family.  The work we are featuring this month from her are from her collection called, “Shedding Skins”.
