Alexandra Reid

Artist’s Statement – Alexandra Reid

“I am interested in the process of thought and memory.  I work with encaustic paint for its unique abilities to preserve life’s ephemera beneath layers of wax and paint.  I use mixed media to assemble images and objects that best fit the theme I am trying to express.  Dreams and daily life serve as inspiration for my works.”
