Erotica // Thursday, December 22, 2011
Alison Brady photographs with an eye towards capturing our unconscious emotions, desires and sexual compulsions. Subjects are harvested then placed in meticulously curated settings and costumes that ping pong between the real and the fantastic. Morbid fascination of contrasts as polar as the sacred and profane populate her work and grip you. An underlying tension of madness and alienation seeps out from the edges of the compositions.
