Becky Alley

Becky Alley's recent work has used the politically charged topic of war as an entry point into deeper conversations about power, gender, and the sacred. She gravitates toward everyday materials like matches, clothespins, fabric, needles, etc.; through repetitive processes of counting, she transforms these mundane objects into memorials for the war dead.
