Gallery Night/Day Pop Up

January 2018 Gallery Night

We are happy to announce our MARNmember artist for the January Gallery Night/Day is Alexa Hollywood.

Alexa Hollywood is a conceptual artist working in a variety of medium. She has participated in 20 juried, member, and invitational shows in the past three years. She has been a published poet and a choreographer/dancer receiving small grants.

Ms. Hollywood recently finished up a three and a half year long project entitled The Personae Project. This work proceeds from exploring permutations of identity and self by means of creating personae. These personae range through three centuries. Some are archetypical, some mundane and some surreal. Through the use of acrylic painting, collage, photography, assemblages, costumes, and books Ms. Hollywood has produced a body of work that is loosely autobiographical; shot through with fantasy, personal symbols, and myth. Others have described the Personae Project as theatrical and hermetic.

Her books can be seen in their entirety online at Alexa Hollywood/Blurb Books. The Compleat Personae and the Ofrenda is a compendium of writings, photographs of the personae and of art relating to them.

She is finishing up two transitional works, Shattering the Recent Past And SHARDS as she begins planning her first installation: Museum of Personal History.
