Biography
Allison Tunis has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Alberta, and a graduate diploma in Art Therapy from the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute. She works mainly in cross-stitch embroidery, but is also interested in combining craft and fine art techniques in mixed media works.
Tunis’ works aim to develop a discourse around cultural conditioning and societal implications of restrictive standards of beauty, as well as the discrimination and violence experienced by people living in marginalized bodies, with a particular focus on the experience of fat and queer people. Themes of social justice, intersectionality, and the need for authentic diversity in representation are important to these works. Allison is currently completing a residency at Harcourt House Artist-Run Centre centering on language and fatness, and will have a solo exhibition in the Harcourt House main gallery in October 2019. Tunis’s work can also be seen in the Alberta Foundation for the Arts permanent collection, and touring rural locations with the Art Gallery of Alberta’s Travelling Exhibition (TREX) program from 2019-2021.



Artist Statement

“This series, The Paths We Forge, was created to remind us that everyday women and femmes, from all backgrounds and abilities, are doing important work to move us forward - and the YW Hub is a home for these where we can center healing and community.”
