Alysia Macaulay studied at the International Center of Photography during her years living and raising a family in New York City. Since moving back to her hometown of Boston in 2015, she has expanded her work to include mixed-media photographic collages.
While her series work tells stories, depicting the subtle, poignant moments that occur within her family life, particularly in times of great challenge, her mixed-media collage work has moved her focus away from representative storytelling to creating work that is more abstract and form based.
Using archival digital prints as her medium, and the instruments of a traditional craftsman – cutting tools, straight edges, rulers, ink, tape and glue, Alysia’s mixed-media collage work is an exploration of manipulating and layering light, depth of field, texture, color and shape, creating limited edition works of art.
Alysia’s work has appeared in numerous group shows, curated online exhibitions, and solo exhibitions at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Boston and Umbrella Arts gallery in New York City.
Alysia Macaulay is represented by 555 Gallery in Boston.
