"Faced with gaps in memory, the total loss of memories and the inevitability of human error, the foundations for personal identity become bare and inconsistent.

Through the use of storytelling and the influence of universal myth and folklore, I am constructing of my own narrative. The creation of these stories become the root system of memories. I align myself with characters and archetypes and through the telling of these stories I adopt personalities and manifest identities."

Alison Yates was born and raised in Idyllwild, a small town in the mountains of California. Being brought up surrounded by the woods, she was steeped in backwoods culture and instilled with the local traditions and myths of the area. Her work has been greatly influenced by the aesthetic and language of her rural landscape and family, and she has cultivated a strong sense of personal myth-making and storytelling.

Alison graduated with a BFA in Printmaking and Book Arts from the California College of the Arts in 2008. She currently lives in Idyllwild, Calfornia and works at the Idyllwild Arts Academy.
