Alison Stigora

Seattle, WA

Alison Stigora is a site-specific artist whose practice explores relationships between physical spaces, materials, and the body. Often using found and natural objects, her work evokes awareness of human scale within the expanse of the natural and constructed world. Emphasizing transformation of familiar materials, she creates environments simultaneously vast and intimate, inviting viewers to pause and notice themselves and their surroundings in new ways.

Stigora is a Seattle resident but is originally from the East Coast and holds her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She enjoys collaborating on large-scale projects and has worked with a range of interdisciplinary professionals, including architects, engineers, dancers, and lighting designers. Stigora has exhibited at the Philadelphia International Airport, Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency, and Nes Artist Residency (Iceland). Her permanent works can be found at Arte Sella Sculpture Park (Italy), Blackfoot Pathways Sculpture Park (Montana), and Domaine de Chaumont sur Loire (France).
