No one is 100% mentally healthy. Mental processes precipitate life’s chaos.

INFORMATION

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 feeling of hope and fulfillment.

Since childhood, I have been focused on analyzing human behavior and I’ve come to realize that people often don’t 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 some place. A printed word. A phrase heard. A person. All the information my senses receive, produces seeds that propel and create 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 materialized 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 is for these works to connect. I want people to recognize themselves in the images and open to the possibility of moving beyond resisting discomfort to a place of surrender.

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 honors from the Miguel Neumann Design Institute. She has participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Spain, Norway, England and Australia.

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 2017 Contemporary Art Prize. She was also selected to exhibit her work at the collective exhibition Artist of Mosman 2088 at the Mosman Art Gallery.

And she was one of the finalists at the Thirty by Thirty Art Prize at the Colour Trap Gallery in Avalon. Her work is in private collections in Spain, Norway, Australia, U.S.A., England, Venezuela and Argentina.

 

Alejandra is more than a talented painter. 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.
