COLOURFUL TANDEM

Composition V & Composition I

" The understanding go white space, movement and time, is apparent within Alejandra's works. Each piece though not singular in components, visually the sculpture becomes whole and one.

 

The proportions, shape, linear aspects and movement enable the viewer to pause; In these moments, the concept of space, and time dissolves." - Sade English

MY BLUE DANCE?

Marset Catalogue 2019

 With My Blue Dance, Alejandre explores performance, and proposes an essay about the recognition of the triad formed by body, form, and color.

Within the process and  response, she seeks to construct a dialogue with materials such as plaster and pure pigment, creating a performance with her own body and challenging herself to find the bond that unites the meaning and the signifier.
