Painting, Booth 123
Alexandrya Eaton is a contemporary Canadian painter. Eaton has had over forty solo exhibitions of her work and her paintings hang in numerous private and public collections. In the past decade her practice has grown to include rug-hooking, incorporating the same vibrant palette and feminine icons across both mediums. Eaton works in a very physical way, painting quickly and on the floor. Her inclusion of tools such as rollers, tape and handmade stencils facilitates her fascination with the repetition of images. Infusing her work with bold colour and lush texture, Alexandrya is interested in femininity and the representation of a powerful female image.
