Alexandra Plim

Artist Statement

Hello! My name is Alexandra. I live in the Inner West of Sydney, Australia, with my partner and two children.

I am an expressive abstract artist. I paint intuitively with acrylics, often incorporating a variety of mixed media. My work is energetic and playful, using colour, texture and bold marks to add drama and movement. In addition to being an artist and mum to two young children, my first love is performance. I am a professionally trained actor, having completed an Advanced Diploma in Acting for Screen and Stage – this experience continues to influence and energise my artistic practice.

Colour drives me. Every canvas is a new place to experiment with different colours and mixes. Along the way, forms and marks pose questions and I respond. I am truly addicted to the irreverent process of creating a painting. Much like rehearsing a play or improvising on stage, painting requires me to be in the moment. And it’s a wonderful feeling.
