Gallery Henoch Presents a Spotlight on Alexandra Pacula
In anticipation of Alexandra Pacula's forthcoming solo show, her new painting, Soaring Empire, is now on view. Pacula's first solo show at Gallery Henoch will open October 2nd, 2014.
Polish-born, New York-based artist Alexandra Pacula (b. 1979, based in New York, NY) paints large-scale works exploring the dynamic energy of cities at night. Pacula investigates a world of visual intoxication employing virtuosic brushwork, vibrant color, and fluid gestures all simulating the turbulence of the nocturnal urban environment. Pacula's unique lexicon of mark-making combines techniques from impressionism, expressionism and photorealism. The resulting compositions vividly convey the exhilaration of a nightly excursion.
Pacula's work has been exhibited throughout the United States as well as Russia, Spain, London, and Paris. In 2010, she was the recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts Painting Fellowship, as well as a one-year residency at the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation, sponsored by the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation. In 2008 Pacula won the Saatchi Showdown Competition. Pacula received her MFA at Montclair State University in 2006 and her BFA from Rutgers in 2002.
