Alison L. Thomson

Alison Thomson is an independent artist, researcher and writer. In 2013 she completed a Master of Fine Art at Monash University exploring philosopher Luce Irigaray's concept of the 'sensible transcendental'. (See PDF attached below or hardcopy at Monash University library.) Irigaray's central argument is that males and females, and the categories of the masculine and feminine, are different and equally valuable. Alison Thomson's artworks attempt to symbolise a synergetic balance of the masculine and feminine, essence and existence, compassion and wisdom. This balance, in its ideal form, can be experienced as Christ consciousness or true Subjecthood. In addition to philosophy, Thomson's current research draws on native orchid conservation, Orthodox Christian art and elements of Tibetan Buddhism which align with the Christian wisdom tradition.
