Joy seeking artist Alexandra Weston was born in Gisborne and is now based in Lyttelton, New Zealand. Her buoyant work reflects her constant search for delight in the mundane and everyday. A curious use of colour, an extraordinary interest in detail and generous allowance of time give her work big depth.
For her Pöttyök, Squareconfetti and Networked pieces Alexandra paints on the reverse side of perspex, resulting in the work being at the back of the acrylic sheet when viewed. This style is one she has played with and explored since 2009. She also paints on perspex, as if it is board, for her landscapes and textured work.
