Amy Alexander

This is a new artist I'm very excited about. Amy Alexander creates architectural portraits with a technique she calls "photage." Using her own photographs, she cuts and reassembles fragments of a place until the resulting image tells a deeper and more complete truth -- as she sees it -- than just one photograph could ever convey. This very labor-intensive process reminds me of deconstruction. She's tearing the surface apart to get to the heart of a place.

A Denver native, she's memorialized the Colorado state capitol, the Pueblo Chieftan, and the Denver Convention Center, among others. This image is of the La Capilla de Todos los Santos. Dimensions are 16 3/4" x 27".
