Alexandra's works are concerned with representing the idea of shared and collective memories as well as her own take on, and response to, the ‘Coming-of-age’ narrative genre.
Alexandra creates a tension between the nature of the ‘minor-milestone’ events the young figures are participating in and the symbolic content of the by-product being rejected from their bodies beyond their control by contrasting the focused black line work with vivid splashes of oozing watercolour in rainbow unicorn-blood-like hues.
"By carefully employing selective personally symbolic artifacts, pop iconography and mass cultural quotations I strive to engage the viewer in a sense of shared experience and collective memory. It is through this practice of visual storytelling that I hope to initiate a nostalgic dialogue with our recent pasts and capture the spirit of teenage innocence, adolescent awkwardness and youthful curiosity. “
