Ali Lochhead

Art for Peace. Private View.

Alison Lochhead is an artist whose work reflects upon the fragmentation of memory and witness of injustices. Her work explores the impact war and conflict has on the world and the environment; the destruction of livelihoods, identities, securities, homes, the migrations, the inhumanities and the hopes of change. Alison works with heat and materials from the earth; iron, clay, rocks, oxides. From molten iron poured from the cuploa and materials put into the kiln; alchemy takes place as the various materials are drawn together or reject each other; they are transformed. A story is told.

Art for Peace will appear in several spaces at Keele University and in Newcastle-under-Lyme town centre in the lead up to Refugee Week 2022.
