Watercolor, gouache and collage on paper | 2018
The artist Alexandra Karamallis is inspired by the symbolism of Persian gardens, and the way we build walls to make space for our emotions. With layers of collage, gouache and watercolor, the artist recreates moments in a garden, working her reflections into the scenery. These works explore how tranquility offers us stability and how walls might be the very thing we need to overcome.
