Allison Low’s practice involves the analysis of psychological complexities and the articulation of intangible states of being.
She graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from UNSW college of fine art in Sydney.
'Oddlings' is an articulation of the intangible aspects of childhood. Dealing with emotional trauma, unconscious desire and loneliness, personal childhood memories and experiences are analysed and expressed in a corrupt idea of 'play'.
Each piece utilizes a series of symbols and metaphors to carry out an underlying narrative which centers around the power play that arises in the long-term interactions between two children who engage in a bully-victim relationship. Allison hints at themes involving Hegel's Master-Slave Dialectic and Sigmund Freud's theories on Unconscious Desire, where subjects are captured in stasis before an event - as a way of addressing the idea of choice whilst emphasizing a slow development of psychosis in relation to time, using games as a premise for abuse.
