In Taking Up Space, Alison Willoughby explores unapologetic boldness, with compositions and striking colours that command attention. This body of work centres around claiming the space one occupies, embracing this instead of shying away from it. Intention throughout the colour palette shows that not only bold colours, but the quieter colours also have their moment as the hero.
In this series of paintings, Alison uses acrylic paint on canvas to create joyful abstractions, in which the viewer can see many different things. Drawing on inspiration from nature and flowers, many of the works take reference from organic forms seen in everyday life.
