Medium

Acrylic and ceramic stucco in stretched cotton canvas

Description

No one is completely mentally healthy. Life’s chaos is precipitated by mental processes.

My artwork is an exploration of consciousness and mental processes. Each work demonstrates a different operation of the mind. Some are darker, like the airless feeling of a panic attack, and some lighter, like the emotion of hope and fulfillment.
Since childhood, I have been focused on analyzing human behavior and I have come to realize that people often do not have the help they need. I have been fascinated by the theoretical limits of the human condition. What starts out as vision soon becomes manipulated into a dialectic of distress, leaving only a sense of chaos and the likelihood of a new beginning. They might find themselves in a dark hole, but there is always light when one surrenders to this darkness. This action holds the possibility of transcendence.

The pieces of art I make start as inspirations based on an initial concept. The world around me is my most direct inspiration. It may be the visual of someplace. A printed word. A phrase heard. A person. All the information my senses receive is like seeds that propel and creates my magic.
Then I play with sketches on paper and feel how I want to express it on the physical plane. All my artworks are the result of an idea that is born internally in my soul and then it is materialised in every stroke of my hands.
After that, I analyze which materials I want to use to express my thought. And there begins the process of collecting paints, canvases, brushes and all mediums that I need to use.
Finally, I let my soul expand through the surface and I flow with the process.

My aim in those paintings is for these works to connect. I want people to realize that everything starts inside their own thoughts and minds.

BIO
Alejandra is a Venezuelan-Spanish contemporary painter, who has been developing her artist’s skills since she was 15 years old. She studied Graphic Design and Art and she graduated with class honours from the Miguel Neumann Design Institute in Venezuela. She has participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Spain, Norway, Venezuela, England and Australia.

Alejandra is more than a talented artist. She is well known for her ability to magically combine different art styles and media into works of fine art of exquisite beauty. All her artwork is an exploration of consciousness and mental processes. Each work demonstrates a different operation of the mind.
Alejandra’s work stands out due to three essential features: Color, Spirituality, and Symbolism. All of them created with the purpose to invite the spectator to recognize themselves in the images and be open to the possibility of moving beyond resisting discomfort to a place of surrender.

Alejandra is currently residing in Sydney. After one year since she arrived from Norway with her family, she was selected as a finalist in the Contemporary Art Prize 2017. She was also selected to exhibit her work at the collective exhibition Artists of Mosman 2088 at the Mosman Art Gallery this year.
Her work is in private collections in Spain, Venezuela, Argentina, Norway, Australia, U.S.A. and England.
