« Listening what the universe tells me, gives me the possibility to understand the flow of transcendence »
Alejandra Sieder is a Venezuelan-Spanish artist who is currently living and working in Sydney, Australia. Sieder’s paintings are an abstract interpretation of her personal perception of the world around her and an exploration into the introspective self.
Given that Sieder’s paintings are an exploration of consciousness and interiority, each work is different as it expresses a different mental process. While some pieces feel sombre and almost claustrophobic others are far softer and lighter, transmitting an atmosphere of hopefulness. Her work centers on the analysis of the human condition and how we respond to the situations we are confronted with.Lire la suite
Subjectivity and Materiality
Sieder’s works start as personal subjective pieces, but once in the public realm move farther away from the personal and psychological, given the non-objective nature of abstraction. Sieder uses an innovative range of materials in her pieces, such as oil, acrylic, sand, ink, iron shavings and resin. These materials add an impasto physicality to the canvas that bring a new dimension and mimic her underlying emotional process.
Prizes and International Collections
Sieder has works in private and corporate collections, and has exhibited in shows worldwide in countries such as Spain, Norway, Australia, the UK and the USA. In both 2017 and 2018, Sieder has been selected as a finalist for the Contemporary Art Prize in Australia.Masquer
