category: Painting
technique: Oilpainting
Style: Modern


Bio / Resumee / Statement:
Alexandra Pacula was born in Poland in 1979 and at the age of fourteen moved to The United States together with her family. She resides in North Haledon NJ and works in a studio in Brooklyn. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers the State University of New Jersey in 2002 and in 2006 finished a Master of Fine Arts degree at Montclair State University of New Jersey. Her work has been included in many exhibitions in the US as well as Spain and London.
Alexandra usually works on a large scale and explores the anxieties and conditioning inherent in being human. Her vigorous painterly scenes of urban nightlife offer an insight to human interactions, seductions and desires. Through bold application of paint, visible brushstrokes and soft glazing she creates a lush, inviting surface that draws the viewer in. Pacula's ideas are inspired by her immediate surroundings and personal experiences and observations.
