Piece description from the artist
Using found images through the search engine Google these pieces reflect humanity’s intellectual world, rather than it’s physical. In a never ending world of possibilities, where only our imagination can limit us. In which intelligence is widely distributed across the landscape. Where you can be anything or anyone. How would the “Global Village” look in the physical world? We put up so much of ourselves onto the internet without really thinking. We give more of ourselves up than we would normally face to face and everyone starts out on a level playing field. Our religion, our ethnic background, our wealth, successes, our sexuality, how we look, our gender, our politics don’t matter and there is something for everyone, even the darkest and the most twisted.
Award winning artist Alexandra Gallagher was born 1980 in Lancashire, England. She focuses on portraiture, digital collage, mixed media and photography.
Alexandra’s work celebrates the surreal and bizarre. Exploring the realms of memory, dreams and experience, her work looks beyond subjective limits and often tells a story of inner imagination and thought. Alexandra draws influence from everything in her world, from pop culture, to short conversations with strangers, to abstract memories. She finds gratification in translating these experiences into pieces of visual art.
Alexandra has had her work exhibited in venues internationally, including the world renowned Saatchi Gallery in London. Her work is a part of numerous collections in countries all over the world.
