Alyssa Bunce (she/her), multidisciplinary artist, focussed on performance, poetry and visual arrangements. My practice ranges from feeling secretive to exhibitory. I choose my medium based on a wish to bring an idea to the physical world with the least possible interference. Across the forms that my works embody, I often lean on symbols for means of communication. I explore themes such as sensuality, substance dependency, the invisible, and the interconnectedness of living things.

When told about the theme for this exhibit, how did you begin the creative process?

alyssa:

Letting my mind play with the textures of amphibian life. Imagining how it would feel to be a frog with an abdomen full of offspring, gelatinous life-essence. Through my imagination I tried to understand the sensory world of an amphibian from the inside. Playing pretend, following my curiosity. I recalled the thrilled marvel of finding frog eggs at a swamp, when I was a child - how miraculous they seemed. I looked to the place inside where human existence / amphibious existance overlap.
