Ready to Hang

This painting was created in front of a live audience at a Gallery event in Santa Monica, CA.

Alex begins with an abstract spray paint background, she works on between 3 and 7 pieces at a time bouncing with from canvas to canvas - creating analogous color schemes for series.

After the spray paint dries, a photo reference is chosen - the painted woman being free form aligns with the background in exciting unexpected ways. The chaos of the spray paint and the fine controlled lines of the woman create a joining of the opposites that parallel the beauty and disarray of life.

Life is messy, life is beautiful.
