Overview

Through a combination of conceptual and intuitive operations, Alexandra Grant transforms texts into patterns of color, shape and form, giving them new life. Her collaborations with Michael Joyce, the renowned hyperfiction writer, and the use of the writings of theorist, novelist and academic Hélène Cixous inspired Grant to create The Ladder Quartet, a series of four large-scale paintings that can be aptly described as "wordscapes" or "landscapes of language." These paintings, along with new work, are presented here, along with essays by LA MOCA curator Alma Ruiz and Hélène Cixous.
Alexandra Grant received a MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in San Francisco in 2000. She had a solo exhibition at Gallery 16:1 in Santa Monica in 2004 and has been in numerous group shows across the country. Her exhibition in L.A. MOCA's Focus series is the first major museum showing of her work.
