Divine Epiphany Artworks
Alexia McKindsey is a Montreal based artist born in 1996 whose work explores the potential of domestic spaces, both as an illusion and pertaining to familial history. Currently pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Arts, her focus lies in painting, drawing and printmaking techniques.
The imagery and themes associated to my work derive from the spaces in which I've inhabited, one that recall sentiments of comfort, memory and the everyday. The spaces we live in are a reflection of ourselves and in many cases, a reflection of the past generations of a family as well. My intention seeks to map out that progression of history and the ways in which our homes carry very specific traditions and peculiarities. Using the memory I have of a particular space, I dissect the fragments that strike me as most personally significant that I’ll then use to collage compositions together. Contrasting and combining elements of the otherwise mundane domestic landscape allows for the creation of a new reality to unfold, often absurd and illogical; a dreamscape of sorts.
