STATEMENT

Alexandra is a dynamic sculptor who uses a wide range of materials to create living and energetic works. “I am most passionate about exploring the human body. I create figurative sculptures, usually working without a model and preferably referring to graphic anatomical representations. This allows me the freedom to see and shape the human body beyond the reality of nature.For my sculptural work I mainly draw inspiration from the diversity of Greek history which over the mil-lennia offers a wide range of impulses. Heroism beyond human limits and multitudes of mythological actors find their way into my sculptures. I prefer characters that can exist apart from the world and like to show dramatic tension. The faces are mostly strained or contemplative, the bodies thin and angular. The delight I enjoy, hopefully finds its way to the viewers and stimulates their reflections of what they see and experience.”
