Alexandra Woodhouse considers her paintings as visual maps, comparable to architectural floor plans. Her motivation is to narrate her surroundings through many perspectives, examining them in relation to her stream of consciousness.
Her work involves looking through multiple lenses simultaneously, such as relating the above to the geometric depiction of empty space, deriving structure out of thoughts and feelings over physicalities. She is interested in digital space and connectivity, and is regularly inspired by the practice of Molly Soda and writings of Chelsea Hodson, who both encompass themes of vulnerability, self identity, contemporary feminism and ‘the gaze’ in their projects. Woodhouse’s practice is a place of comfort and control, working with the poetics of order as to meditate on issues of existentialism and anxiety.
