ARTIST INFO
Alexander’s work is characterized by the artist’s ongoing consideration of illusion and material desires framed within the language of architecture and design. Since the early 1980’s Alexander has investigated culture’s appropriation and substitution of nature as it is manifest in mass market interior design items, such as photomurals of scenic landscapes, wood veneers and decorative mirrors. Her photographs, collages, drawings, installations and sculpture recognize the artificial as a place for utopian fantasy, a surreal space where the natural is recreated in an improved or even perfected form. She examines how the formal signs of photography, architecture as well as interior and graphic design reveal and shape meaning in our contemporary culture, bringing to the fore discussions of capitalism, commodification and desire within the parameters of fantasy and cultural longing.
