Combining memory and pattern, Alex Guariglia’s paintings depict stylized spaces that center her subjects into self-contained worlds. The artist draws inspiration from femininity, motherhood, leisure, craft and magic, as well as the more performative aspects of studio practice. Alexa Guariglia’s paintings are oblique and allegorical works that land somewhere between self-portraiture and painting about painting.
Alexa Guariglia was born in New York City in 1990. The artist received her BFA in painting from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts in 2011.
Exhibitions of Guargilia’s work include five solo presentations at Moskowitz Bayse in Los Angeles, California, as well as additional solo and group exhibitions in New York City and Boston, Massachusetts.
Guariglia lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island.
