Alexandra’s paintings narrate her intimacy with local urban landscape. Having moved into a Red Hill ‘renovators delight’ 35 years ago, she deciphers the language of early Queensland architecture encompassed by the concrete edifices of the city. Exploring cycles of decay and repair, her highly detailed work captures these changing features. Light delineates the strong repetition evident in architectural features, while traffic signs and line marking show changing pace in a modern graphic context.
