Alexandra Fuchs (Lima, 1973).
Designer and Artist. My style is usually characterized by great simplicity affecting the naivety of childish sensibility. It is characterized by its great simplicity in forms and in the use of very bright colors.
As an artist she seeks to find balance and harmony between these two realities, which seem divorced; the real world vs. the fantasy. My works open a space in the memory of viewers to remind them that the simple activities we did as children, such as dancing, singing, flying, riding a bicycle, made us happy. Professional Career: I studied Design at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, in the year 2000. Along with my Design career, I designed and produced showcases with which I acquired certain titles. In 2002, I traveled to Buenos Aires, where I learned engraving with the renowned artist Lucrecia Orloff. With her I ventured into the techniques of lithography and xylography.
For Happiness series, I took the alter ego of Alice or Snow White, constituting my own wonderland with an entourage of characters and situations that lead us to connect with the desired happiness. Rabbit characters. The search for this supreme good has led me to work with different media, techniques and visual languages in recent years, a great journey in which my sculptures become one of them. For me, there is a clear intention to find balance and harmony between these two realities that seem divorced; the real world vs. the fantasy. In my world, happiness is accompanied by fantastic friends, beautiful accidents and everyday events. Afía.
