Alexandra Wiesenfeld
German, b. 1967
Follow

Alexandra Wiesenfeld works from photographs to create fantastical figurative and landscape paintings. The Los Angeles–based artist begins her paintings from her own photographs, transforming them from depictions of the real world into otherworldly spaces that expand upon the source image’s psychic implications. She maintains traces of the original image in her paintings through references to the natural world or the appearance of humans. “In figuration, I find a mirror of our everyday balancing act—between reading the appearance of the physical and dealing with its psychological, symbolic, historical, literary ramifications,” Wiesenfeld has said.
