Emerging artist Alexandra Grounds modernises pop-art icons with giant feminist works

Alexandra Grounds’ gap year after high school started with gaining inclusion at one of Miami’s most notable galleries. At just 19 years old, she has certainly become an artist to watch out for, creating massive oil paintings that hold a place in the movement for female empowerment, as well as already selling to significant collectors.

"Rather than try to get rid of all the things that have constituted being a woman for so long, as some feminists in some ways try to do, I think we should embrace those aspects – regarding sexuality and our bodies," says Alexandra.

Represented by the Oliver Cole Gallery, Alexandra was also a pivotal force in the development of the Arts Department at her former academy. Her paintings are founded on an introspective message of gender equality and the importance of deflecting stereotypes. The subjects of her work, many reflective of the artist herself or iconic women through history, are modernised with visual characteristics of resilience, passion and allure. Discover more at Artsy.
