Inspired by personal events, Trust Issues challenged Alison to examine the relationships in her life that have shaped her views of intimacy, family, friendship, and selfhood. At the entrance of the exhibit is a large installation exploring the toxic connections that instill mistrust in others. Alison reflects, “Trust. When there is a breakdown in trust within a relationship, it is often difficult to fully regain belief in others again. It breeds insecurity and fear, and these vulnerabilities then become fair game for opportunists. This exhibit is my way of confronting the moments when I lost trust. With each experience, I became more aware of people’s ill intentions and my own self limiting thoughts. Knowing when to leave a toxic situation and reclaiming my inner strength were how I learned to trust again.”
