Alexandra Mocanu’s fabulous woven abstract tapestries has a painterly quality. They are first painted in gouache then meticulously decomposed on a loom. Mocanu was born in Bucharest, her mother a textile artist and her father designs furniture. She began her journey in the creative world exploring her own compositions and perceptions, first through photography and then through painting and tapestry. Her solo exhibition Tapestries is on view until January 24, 2020 at Twenty First Gallery, NY.
