Alexandra Oddie

 

“I am inspired by the use of everyday materials; the most disregarded material can be an object of beauty. My art communicates a community of diverse culture. A second skin to a preexisting surface. Each tile represents an individual. An identity, formed by the same technique but visually very different. The interpretation of the grid is that of a controlled society, conforming to a role of a mundane lifestyle and limited development.

The process behind my art work is that I cast ceramic tiles embedding recycled objects. These objects manipulate the material, create texture and also create reactions. The materials I use help create a human like skin, hair regrowth and help depict age. Visually something quite complex, revealing a thousand stories.

Throughout my career my art work has developed through experimentation with materials, even more so through my residency here at The Firestation. In the past my work was simplistic and I only used a single material, whereas now I very much regard myself as a mixed media based artist.”

Influenced by astrology, modernism, iconic photography and vintage magazines, sØlar's Surreal Collages are real visions of art with a difference.

sØlar said.... "I've never worked with digital methods as I always prefer to work analogue with whatever source material I find from old science magazines to books on the Himalayas and trusty old vintage National geographics."
