There are two tides, one of light and another of muffling, suffocating... absence. Alexandra is clearly in the light.” -William Hurt Like her muse, the Romantic-era poet and painter William Blake, painter Alexandra Eldridge has developed her own vocabulary of symbols that are both mysterious and tender. There is much to love in this prolifically produced body of work... - Art News Heightened States of Being, the primacy of feelings and the individual journey of the soul are the ascendant subjects of Alexandra’s artistic discovery. - Michael Gormley Alexandra Eldridge carries on a conversation with the eternal and essential through art. Her paintings oscillate between the visible and invisible worlds, suggesting a place on the periphery of knowledge - a poetic place; imagined and intuited but rarely seen. - Adam Fuss G2 G A L L E R Y S A N T A F E. 702 1/2 CANYON ROAD.
