Alison Flora is a pluri-disciplinal artist living in Toulouse, south of France. From a fine arts course, Alison  draws inspiration from medieval representations, alternative cultures and everything related to esoterism. In her drawings, videos and installations, she explores the expression of "contemporary hell" (stress, social anxiety, trauma...) calls upon a universe where mysticism, fantasy and madness merge. Influenced by the work of Roland Topor, Genesis P-Orridge, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Boleslaw Biegas, J.R.R Tolkien, all artists in the field of art brut, she exorcises her fears, her obsessions, through dramatic-humorous universe in a sort of ritualized therapy. Her latest project is a series of drawings, painted with her own blood (harvested using blood test), questioning the simulacrum of violence and resistance and the act of magic.

Blood is inherently ambivalent. It has played and continues to play a fundamental role in all civilisations. Blood defiles and purifies, it is masculine and feminine, pompous or fatal, beneficial or dangerous, and spreading it can be a crime or sacred act.
