artist bio

Ms. Hollywood first encountered visual art at age four when she and her siblings would race through the Seattle Art Museum which at that time was located in Volunteer Park.The guard was wary but tolerated them. In contrast, the guard at the Conservatory summarily tossed the ebullient brats out of that august Victorian glass building. After age six, her visits to the art museum were sporadic.

She attended college at the University of Washington where she worked in the Audio Visual Department showing slides and films in Art History classes. She also showed slides for visiting artists at the Seattle Art Museum. She continued visiting museums.

Throughout her life, she was an avid doodler and visitor of art museums in the USA and abroad.She finally decided to make visual art.

artist statement

Artist's Statement:
Alexa Hollywood is a conceptual artist working in a variety of medium. She has participated in 18 juried, member and invitational shows in the past two and a half years. She has been 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.

Liminal is her current word of choice as she continues exploring a variety of medium and waiting for the next big idea to strike.
