Alison Bigg is a contemporary artist practicing in traditional territories of the Lkwungen (Lekwungen) peoples (Victoria, BC). Working in a broad range of media including found objects, ceramics, installation and printmaking she creates sculptures that engage senses of sight, scent, sound and light. Her sculptures negotiate a tension between splendor and spectacle by confronting the viewer with subject matter that elicits disparate sensations of wonderment and discomfort.
Alison graduated from Emily Carr College of Art in 1989. In 2017 she finished an Independent Studies program at Vancouver Island School of Art. Alison was awarded a People and Places grant for a large project by the City of Victoria (2012) and has had several solo shows in B.C. She currently has a studio space and is a board member at arc.hive Artist Run Centre.
