Aisha Christison

Aisha Christison (b. Margate, 1989) studied at the Chelsea College of Art, graduating in 2012. Notable exhibitions include: a booth at 37th Art Brussels, with Damien and the Love Guru; Disir at TM lighting gallery, London; All in green went my love ridingat Giardini dello Zuccaro, Venice; as well as Giotto’s Room curated by Lucy von Goetz in 2018.

Christison currently resides and works in Brussels, Belgium. Christison’s dreamlike spaces of the canvas are collaged and fragmented. At times the figures and symbols give way to psychological landscapes and still lives, in others the thematics and motifs of the Baroque are woven into theatrical tableau and utilised with a contemporary coolness—images are repeated, stylised, and refined to a gestural incident.
