Prey, Watercolor, 44x30
As a figurative painter of the human form, Alexandra aspires to
capture an ethereal beauty that transcends reality by using the body itself as an emotional medium. She records images of live models, capturing the movement and emotions that statically posed figures cannot evoke. Of the naked form, she purges the gratuitous elements and chooses what is only necessary. She finds beauty to be subtle, simple, elegant, and pure, stripped down to reveal the bare essence of what is true. By only painting what needs to be described, she has left it to the viewer's mind's eye to complete the
view in perfect detail.
