Alexandra Wiesenfeld Bio

About The Artist

Alexandra Wiesenfeld is a German-born, Los Angeles-based artist who works primarily in oil paint on canvas and mixed-media on paper. Wiesenfeld draws and paints in layers, allowing the history of ideas to overtly inform her final choice of imagery. Temporality, choice, and an insistent dialogue between reason and emotion (which Wiesenfeld presents as two parts of the same whole) are frequent themes in her practice, along with a consistent use of multi-imagery—often involving a juxtaposition of human and animal forms—and a visceral use of color.

Wiesenfeld has exhibited her work in recent solo exhibitions at gallery km and the Happy Lion Gallery (now Nye + Brown) in Los Angeles, as well as in group exhibitions in Germany, New York, and throughout California. She received her BFA from Pomona College and an MFA from Montana State University, and is currently an Associate Professor at Los Angeles City College.
