These skulls are out of a series of 9 - Only a few remain
Stenciled and one of a kind, each skull has a heart nose and is on a small chunky wood panel with the wood grain showing through.
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.
