Garda Alexander - painter, draftsman
"In my opinion, art is tasked with inspiring and enriching life, as well as making other worlds and dimensions accessible."

Artist Garda Alexander deals with the media of painting, sculpturing and spatial installation. Her work is characterized by her medical and artistic education. Alexander studied natural medicine (1983-1990), design in Zurich (1990-1993), free art in Zebégény, Hungary (1995) and in Bratislava, Slovakia under Prof. D. Fischer (1996). She lives in Zurich, where she works as a freelance artist.

Energy fields / tracks

The paintings of this group of Garda Alexander's works are created using acrylic paint on canvas. The images, which are divided into two color zones, appear to be structured and well thought out. The colors are cheerful and lively. Neither nuances nor a characteristic style can be found in the pure color areas. The free shapes or traces left by the pigments form an expressive trace; they break through and connect the seemingly closed monochrome surfaces.

Symbols and stories

Garda Alexander focuses on the free traces, but also on figurative animal drawings. Thus the viewer can form a narrative thread or seek associations with the various animals. These characterize different cultures and mentalities. In front of the monochrome and likewise geometric background, they produce something concrete, alive and seemingly identifiable.

Scholarships and extensive exhibitions

Garda Alexander has received numerous scholarships, awards and contributions from, among others, the Familien-Vontobel Foundation or the Swiss Global Trustees. Her works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions. For example in the Barbarian Art Gallery Zurich 2016, the Kunsthalle Liestal 2008, the Balnéologicky Muzeum in Slovakia 1997 or the Slovak National Gallery Zvolen and Dunajska Streda, 1996.
