Alison McCreesh

Since moving to the Northwest Territories in 2009, Alison McCreesh has travelled extensively throughout Northern Canada and the Arctic. Through her gallery work, illustrations, sketchbooks and comics, Alison documents and explores the contemporary North. Her work dwells on the way northern identity shifts rapidly as tradition and modernity collide and coexist North of 60: sometimes in confrontation with one another, sometimes evolving in parallel and sometimes mixing to create striking hybrids. Alison currently lives in Yellowknife in a small shack on the shore of Great Slave Lake - with high speed internet and no running water.
