Alexandra Hood earned her B.A. from Elmira College and currently works in her hometown of Lewiston, Maine. Focusing on realistic oil paintings and graphite portraits, Alexandra frequently explores the subjects of lust, power, human connection, and emotional transparency in her work. The depiction of money flowers, a popular theme in her recent paintings, references the delicate relationship between materialism and our expressions of power and love. Alexandra's portrait drawings manipulate the veil placed between the subject and the viewer, expressing or shielding the underlying fragments of our natural selves and peeling back the layers of personal identity.
Alexandra Hood has been included in multiple solo and group exhibitions between Maine, Upstate New York, and New York City. Alexandra currently works at Bates College as the Olin Arts Center Operations Supervisor. For more information, visit: www.alexandrahood.com
