Alexandra Wiesenfeld: The Uncharted Terrain of the Soul

“…the beauty of this world which is so soon to perish, has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.” ~ Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own
“Any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.” ~ Homer, The Iliad

Meet Alexandra Wiesenfeld

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexandra Wiesenfeld.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I didn’t grow up thinking I would make art, let alone paintings. I certainly hated posing for them, which I did for years for my father. My father was a painter and so is my brother, who was always regarded as the more talented sibling. Though my art making was not encouraged, my hands were restless ... (read more)

In a State of Constant Introspective Flux: “Man-Made” by Alexandra Wiesenfeld
By Tulika Bahadur
“Man-Made” (2007-2009) by Los Angeles-based Alexandra Wiesenfeld (born in Munich, Germany) is an unusual project – something of a turning point in the career of the artist – that speaks volumes about the human condition and our wider environment. Here we find portraits based on mugshots of juvenile death row inmates from Texas juxtaposed with depictions of Fort Peck, a man-made lake in the badlands of Montana. The artist works out a ...

Klowden Mann, Los Angeles is exhibiting Alexandra Wiesenfeld's "o" through June 3, 2017.

Drawings will be spread from ceiling to floor of individual walls, organized by time of creation and theme with one drawing, acting as source material for a larger painting executed directly on the gallery walls. Created last year, the ... (read more)

Alexandra Wiesenfeld at Klowden Mann
Walking into Klowden Mann–currently housing Munich-born, Los Angeles-based artist Alexandra Wiesenfeld’s latest exhibition, o–one is struck with the unorthodox hanging of the artist’s work. Here, small and large pieces are seemingly arranged at random. Several works are crowded onto a single wall in a style reminiscent of the Parisian salons of yore, while other areas are virtually empty. There is, naturally, a method to such unexpected madness. The show was organized based on theme and ... (read more)

Jamison Carter, Rebecca Ripple and Alexandra Wiesenfeld in group exhibition at Descanso Gardens 9.10.15

When you hear the word “oasis,” what comes to mind? Bright blue water, ringed with palms, set in a sunbaked desert? The exhibit Oasis looks beyond these surface characteristics, and broadens the definition of oasis to a place of refuge, a way station for travelers, an island of life in the middle of a difficult and dangerous landscape.
In the exhibit, 22 artists use the theme of “oasis” as a point of departure, with artworks that not only fill the Gallery but also spill ... (read more)

Toxic Skies and Heavenly Light: Alexandra Wiesenfeld at Klowden Mann

Alexandra Wiesenfeld (NAP #61) paints massive landscapes suggestive of the California painting tradition of the past, but she reinvigorates these on a grand scale and reimagines them with bold colors, frantic lines, and bursts of energy.

Her recent show “When I When If When Lie When Life (Xavier Villaurrutia)” at Klowden Mann offered viewers a delightful experience of envelopment. Her grandiose oil paintings run six feet tall or wide and powerfully connect the walls ... (read more)

Klowden Mann featured in Artsy’s Follow Friday: Dallas Art Fair Edition 4.13.14

Last fall, Klowden-Mann Gallery inaugurated its new Culver City, California space—having moved from Santa Monica and changed its name from ‘gallery km’—with an exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Bettina Hubby. The gallery pays particular attention to the city’s native artists, so featuring Hubby was a natural entrance; and this week, they’ll show the L.A. darling at the Dallas Art Fair. From a series titled “before sex,” the gallery presents 15 of Hubby’s small prints—photographs on silk—featuring ... (read more)

Grady Harp reviews Alexandra Wiesendfeld’s work in poets and artists 4.4.11

Palimpsest can be defined as something reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form. Alexandra Wiesenfeld creates her mysteriously compelling canvases and works on paper using this very technique: more often than not her most successful paintings are those canvases repeatedly painted over, as though absorbing the history of the painting eroded while at the same time pushing to continually resolve portions of surfaces that may never be completed appears to be the drive to completely communicate the ideas that ...
