“Heart of the Matter” by Alexandra Boyden At Art On Broadway

Alexandra Boyden is February’s featured artist at Art On Broadway. Her exhibit of new pastel paintings, 

“The Heart of the Matter”, is largely inspired by artichokes and by her dad. The exhibit opens February 3 and ends February  27, 2016. The public is invited to a reception with complimentary refreshments and wine on Saturday, February 13 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Alex Boyden – Veggie Rose

Alex’s memory of her father is of a man who knew well how to embrace the little things, often with humor.

In the spirit of his legacy, she has chosen to portray a vegetable she has long admired – the artichoke – rather than her usual landscapes. When stopping to eat an artichoke, one slows down and enjoys the process . . . leaf by leaf. This is the heart of the matter.

Alex shares, “My art-making process has always included stretching realism to abstraction. This time, however, I stretch my tools to include more than pastels. My approach is at once planned and serendipitous.

The result is an eclectic mix, each piece developing its own personality. I like that the anatomy of an artichoke easily lends itself to personification. The layers of leaves, like personality traits, some prickly and some not, each surround a core heart.”

”With Alzheimer’s,” she continues, “my father’s traits may have become more prickly, but he never lost his dignity and generous heart.”  

Alex plans to donate a percentage of sales from this show to the Alzheimer’s Association.
