Alexandra S. Ikonomou
Through my work, I am trying to encompass films I watch, things I read, I see, I think about, I imagine, fantasise as well as things I recall from my childhood.
My recent work seems to hover between two poles of the uncanny and melancholic nostalgia. The objects and décor within the paintings are suffused with the aura of epochs past and present as well as memories from my childhood. I always try to include a touch of my Greek culture into the paintings, as I feel very nolstagic when I think of Greece.
