Alison Smith is a storyteller and naturalist, whose ambitious installations and performances engage the senses. Her work is a union of place and process: She balances deep examination of her native Bay Area with frequent explorations of the western United States. What she discovers informs, alters and enriches the visual art, music and scent she creates to tell her stories. At once lustful and restrained, autobiographical and fantastical, wild and plotted, her work is alive — breathing and bleeding.
