About

Alexandra Gould
Through painting, drawing and printing I create bold figurative portraits.

I also depict creatures and objects that we humanize & value such as ships & submersibles. How I portray the subject reflects my observations and relationship with that person or object.

The work guides the viewer, to see details or the beauty of a moment. It is emotional, drawn on experiences and observations developed from my photography, conversations and travel as an expedition artist. I feel portraiture can and should embrace more than people as a way to understand and connect to human experiences, interpreting subjects more directly and intimately for the viewer.

Inspired by the mix of science and art my work is often graphic & concerned with the promotion of ideas.
