Alexa Graham has worked under a variety of conditions where she has been able to fine-tune many skills that revolve around her love of fine art. While working primary in large-scale fiber sculptures, she maintains an Etsy store that showcases her more commercial and utilitarian designs.
Anatomical. Raw. Utilitarian.
Humans come from the earth, roam the earth and it is from the earth that I create the work that I do. The dyes that seep into the threads of my work are sourced from the earth and are created by my own hands. The anatomy of the human body can be seen in the seams, within the colors, coursing through the statements that I portray. Using original poetry, I pull from my human experience and connect the two with the use of text on woven fabric.
I work to keep the earth uncontaminated. The materials I use are sustainable in an effort to create less waste.
Art is a way to communicate to many, on an ever-dyeing planet, to conserve and to exist harmoniously.
