Artist's Statement:
Alexa Hollywood is a conceptual artist working in a variety of medium. She has participated in juried,
member and invitational shows. In the past, she was a published poet and choreographer/dancer
receiving small grants.
Ms. Hollywood is finishing up a four 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.
The 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.
Ms. Hollywood also draws the human figure and paints portraits.
