Artist Bio
Alexandra Peters
born 1990, Warrnambool, Victoria
lives and works in Naarm/Melbourne 

Alexandra Peters is a painter, sculptor, screen printer and noise musician. Her practice is situated within the field of expanded painting through the interrogation of support structures and framing devices. Adopting the materials and methods of mass industry, Peters probes hierarchies of value and toys with notions of the artist’s unique subjectivity, so embedded in Western lineages of painting. Her stealth employment of the mechanical processors of reproduction hijack and obscure content across the pictorial plane, as she traces the purlieu of the suburban terrain. 

Alexandra completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) at Monash University, Melbourne in 2022, where she was the recipient of the Monash University Museum of Art Award and the Megalo Print Award. She has undertaken several residencies including Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Perth, 2023, Megalo Print Studio, Canberra, 2023 and AqTushetii, Tusheti, Georgia, 2018.
