Alexandra Gromova

My current practice puzzles over exploring and visualizing an invisible realm of female mental experience: in particular spontaneous and uncontrollable emotions. To visualize these invisible states I use paints to create a story, based on my concept and fluorescent colours, where I put characters, shapes, lines and marks into a balanced composition. My narratives are seeking to feature and reveal the inner enigma, vulnerability, fragility, misunderstanding, alienation and complexity of female nature.”
