User Bio

"Alexandra Kuechenberg is an LA/NY based conceptual artist. Her work takes the form of photography, video, painting, sculpture and drawing. When not in her own studio, she moonlights, directing contract installation/fabrication projects for Schreiber Studios. Along side Miami based laser-artist Matthew Schreiber, she works closely with, and draws inspiration from, light and space artist James Turrell.

Surrounded by light and immersed in research into the likes of Robert Irwin and Larry Bell, her own work, by contrast, is rooted in the human [i]rational. Motivated by the writings of theorists such as Jean Baudrillard, Nietzsche, and Kant, (with the exception of artists such as Rauschenberg, Duchamp, Yves Klein, and the Viennese Actionists) Kuechenberg's work is clearly realized from heavy [perhaps perturbed] formulation .

A passionate writer, Kuechenberg’s art is often an elegant fusion of intellect, satire, and technical know-how. As a story, it has a bizarre and uncertain ending. One feels as though intensely burdened by some crippling fact, with no means to adjust.

Often brain bendingly unexpected, you are left feeling a little helpless, but happy. However, despite being undeniably playful, there remains to be a disquieting element – a sense that the control we think we have over objects and impulses could at any moment slip from our hands; that the world could change, twist, and in an instant devour all semblance of normality in itself."
