Moved by the groundbreaking experimentation of the great Abstract Expressionists of the mid-Twentieth Century, Rai Alexandra's quest to go beyond painting's traditional materials pushed her to explore colored paper's possible transformation into "paint"; She developed an original method of painting with paper using a hybrid mix of hand-torn collage and assemblage to create bold and textured abstract fields, shapes and color.
Rai Alexandra also has an interest in and experiments with found objects to create 2 and 3-D conceptual works of art.
Born in Venezuela, she currently lives in New York City, where she works on site-specific commissions for corporate clients, designers and personal collectors.
We now introduce the first rug collection designed by Rai.
