Warm September Nights: Mini Solo Exhibition
10–18 september 2022
Welcome to Alexandra Grisanti’s first solo exhibition: Warm September Nights. This show is about the feeling of transition between seasons, summer and fall, and life and death. The artist was inspired by events that occurred in summer 2022: a friend from the past is dead, summer loneliness and nostalgia. This exhibit is also hopeful. Times of transition bring excitement and the unknown. Grief is a part of being alive. Death highlights the now. We are alive right now.
“As an artist, I find it very difficult to write about art. When I make art, it comes from a place of emotion, a place of need. As much as I try to make a concept first and then make the art about that concept, I can’t. I get too bored with a preconceived concept.
I lose the lust of making the art when I make it about something specific, to say something specific. For me, art is more about the visual interest I can create. I surprise myself. Can I make something that makes my heart jump? Can I make something mysterious that draws me in? I don’t know what it is going to look like. I don’t know until years later why I made something.”
