Alexandra Weston

The SQUARECONFETTI series of original artwork is influenced by daily scenes where objects are en masse; a street crowd, a cluster of buildings, displayed produce, fallen leaves for example. Each piece represents how objects interact with each other, complimenting, contrasting and layering to create a collective image.

The method of applying paint to the reverse side of an acrylic sheet results in the first brush strokes being most obvious and reducing from there, quite the opposite to traditional painting. The artworks have a clean, simple two dimensional finish that draws the viewer in.

The heavy layering and full coverage method that Alexandra uses is extremely time intensive, thus becoming a feature of her work.

Alexandra has spent close to two decades in the home decor / styling / design industries while residing in Hong Kong, Auckland and now Christchurch.
