Turning Down the Volume — Alexandra Squire Finds Her Voice by Capturing Simplicity

Bethesda, Maryland based painter, Alexandra Squire is an Abstract contemporary painter and artist.  in a world that is busy with their work, Alexandra’s artwork is all about simplicity.

As a child, Alexandra was always interested in painting. As she grew up, she gave up on her creativity and continued with her studies. She achieved her MBA degree from Washington, D.C. She was later busy with her professional life working in the media. Later, she left behind her career in the media to follow something scary and far more fulfilling. According to Alexandra. “It wasn’t easy as a mom of young children to establish a brand-new career in the midst of figuring out who I was in my new role, but it was vital to my sanity and happiness. My art is another pillar of who I am”.

Alexandra was a self-taught, instinctual and contemporary artist. She likes to create simple shapes and strong palettes that are bold yet uncomplicated. Her minimalist style is intended to give viewers the space they need to create a connection with the art. “I am trying to tell all of our stories. What my art means to me is likely very different from what it means to you, yet we can both see something compelling in it,” adds Alexandra. She is not at all worried about keeping up with trends or rushing her process. Alexandra Squire’s true style comes out when she is focused on creating art that is substantial, open to interpretation, and rich with depth and texture. 

Alexandra generally works with oil pastels, acrylics, and resin. “My resin pieces are admired for their ability to be both simple and deceivingly complex.  I explore the process of slowly blending darker colours with others that lighten them.  This exercise in patience and precision is a reminder that we cannot rush growth – it comes about in its own organic way, unencumbered by deadlines and force.” says Alexandra. 

In her career as a painter, Alexandra’s work has been in several shows regionally and worldwide. She has never submitted her work to juried art shows but currently is looking forward to pursuing this route in the coming future.

Alexandra still has a lot more talent to express and many parts of her individuality she wishes to explore through art. If you want to know more about Alexandra Squire and her fine artwork you can check out her social media handle (link down below)
