Explore Your Own Self-Perception Through Art During a Thoughtful Student Exhibition

K Space Contemporary is pleased to announce the September Gift Shop exhibition, New Work by Alex Mayfield. Mayfield was selected for exhibition through a portfolio review. Her work will be on display through October 5th.

Alex Mayfield is currently attending TAMUCC, receiving a minor in art. She began drawing at a young age and found it easier to express herself through art. Mayfield continued art classes through high school, which carried into college where she took Life Drawing. She finds inspiration through Jenny Saville’s exploration of the body and its many forms. The works in this show were inspired by combining new methods of representation with her personal experiences.

“My artwork explores how emotions and moments affect self-perception. Cycling through many emotions during the day, the person in the mirror and photos seems to be someone else each time. I use these moments to explore what I see and how it changes between minutes and days, conveying them in portraits. … With an exploration into when someone is not at their best or not in the perfect pose, this exhibit is to inspire those who need it to interpret what they need from it.” – Alex Mayfield
