Allyson Rousseau

Allyson Rousseau is a Fibre Artist and Designer, born in 1993 and based out of Montréal, QC. 
While completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Guelph (2014). Rousseau's work has been included in over 300 private collections throughout North and South America, Europe, and Asia, and has been exhibited in Canada and the United States.
Her practice as a fibre artist is inspired by the simple sensibility found in modernist painting and graphic design; contributing a new and personal perspective to the ever-evolving conversation of contemporary fibre art.
Artist Statement 
Using hand-woven and tufted gradation and blending techniques, Rousseau explores relationships of colour and line.  She weaves with colour as one might paint, creating works that warp her medium into another realm, often resulting in an illusion where form manipulates space, and vice-versa.
Technically, her practice focusses on the basic elements of weaving by hand with self-made looms, using uncomplicated tools, recycled and second-hand materials, and techniques all self-taught.
