"Deconstructing Emotions"Oil on Wood Panel Deconstructing the human body into simple directional lines and a simplistic color palette, becoming an emotional expression. Tethering from the conscious to the unconscious brain in order to figure out what are we made of.
Connecting the dots and reaching for something higher, something unknown to the conscious mind.
About the Artist
Born in 1987 in Manizales, Colombia. Alejandra studied Visual Arts at Miami International University of Art & Design, where she dedicated her time to explore with painting, photography, and sculpture, using the human body as a way to communicate. Mixing colors, textures, lights and cultures, have been fundamental for her career transformation. Her abstract pieces tend to attack Colombia´s violent society. In 2014 she started working in digital media, creating content for Fusion, an ABC-Univision joint-venture. At the same time, she was working with Federico Uribe, a Colombian artist based in Miami since 1997. She was motivated by the movement of the materials, positions, and colors of objects, transforming simple objects into collisions In 2015 she experienced a new stage: textile sculpture. Showing her pieces at the exhibition “They Demand Freedom from Constraint” at Young At Art Museum in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In 2016 she decided to pursue a master in Communication Design, at
the IED Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid. Her studies took her to involve more in Colombia´s nature, culture and materials discovering the great advantages of the Fique plant. Her work has been shown around Europe, the United States, and Colombia.
