Alexandra Devitt-Lansom

With a BA and Honours in Fine Art from Curtin University in Perth, Alexandra has worked with glass as a sculptural medium for 15 years. Her experience has come from working with various Australian, American and New Zealand artists and collaborated in public artworks in Perth, Adelaide, Barossa and Mid Murray regions.

Themes that have influenced Alexandra’s work include; displaying elements of gossip, human physical difference, psychology of visual difference and movement of colour through light. These themes have been portrayed successfully through glass utilizing traditional and contemporary sculptural formats. A strong emphasis on capturing a moment is incorporated in her work. This allows each piece to be expressed as a representation of a well -known or unfamiliar moment. This experience takes the viewer away from the now and introduces questions towards oneself of morality utilising humour and / or considered contemplation.

Alexandra has exhibited her work in over 100 fine art galleries in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, won numerous awards and had success in State and Commonwealth funding for her Community Cultural Arts Development projects.

Alexandra works from her studio in Keyneton, set alongside the Barossa Valley; where the countryside is a tranquil setting when creating her work and raising her family. Alexandra’s work inspires you to step outside of the ordinary and experience the magnificence of static moments.
