ABOUT ME

Artist statement: Reflecting on the experience

Large series of works on a specific topic. Angels, humans – about love, roads and signs  – about the city and cars, Cosmos – about the eternal and grandiose.

Strategically, Alexandra is absolutely free and unpredictable. But tactically – within a topic – indicatively disciplined.

She is faithful to the chosen technique and to herself as an artist, consistently following the spirit of love for the precise geometry of lines and colours.
