ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Alex Nuñez is a Cuban American from Miami, FL. She completed her BA at Loyola University of New Orleans in 2006. After graduating, she completed international immersive workshops at Firenze Arti Visive, Florence and Metafora, Barcelona. In 2009, she received a Post Baccalaureate Diploma from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Her work began to take shape on a more massive scale, experimenting with installations and large-scale paintings. In 2012 she completed her MFA at Hunter College and received the C12 Emerging Artist Fellowship Award.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work attempts to create portals that reveal the constant mutation of seemingly recognizable imagery; alternate imagined spaces where time stretches and stops – and where transparent curtains blur the passage of time. Condensed clusters of activity are balanced with meditative breaks that allow reflection on physical space. A trail is formed of personal hieroglyphics, a compilation of seemingly meaningless symbols creating imagery, mimicking nature. Connections and pathways overlap, repeat and obscure in playful and obsessive configurations.
