Allison Ward works through gestural abstract expressionism using encaustic wax and various collage mediums. Through the series “My Left, You’re Right” she explores thoughts deployed by clinical diagnosis. More specifically speaking to times of complete mental distraction, isolation, disassociation, and defeat. In this, she conceptually explores her thoughts as a person living day to day with mental health issues. Using gathered materials from her time spent in a mental health facility, reflecting on the things which brought her there. She uses each canvas as a sounding board, splaying her thoughts and emotions decisively, in the moment, with a sense of catharsis.
