Alexandra Hedison is a Los Angeles-based artist and photographer who first showed her abstract landscape work at Rose Gallery in Santa Monica's Bergamot Station. In 2003, Hedison's solo exhibition Elements, an overview of her work from the previous 4 years, was exhibited at White Room Gallery in West Hollywood. In 2005 the gallery also exhibited her (Re)building series, which addressed the challenging themes of loss, transition, and recovery.
Ithaka is Hedison's latest body of work, which takes its title from the C.P. Cavafy poem of the same name. Shot in the temperate rainforest in North America, this series of large-format photographs first previewed for the press launch of Concrete + Glass (the art event which brought together over 25 artists to the galleries and art spaces in London's East End) in July 2008. The same year, Hedison exhibitedIthaka at Shoreditch Town Hall in London and Gallery 28 in New York as part of the New Yorker's 2008 Passport to the Arts.
She is currently working on a new series of images that examines the foundation and construction of Malibu beach houses as a metaphor for the role of memory in the architecture of the subconscious.
Hedison will be participating in an international group exhibition that will tour the Middle East in 2010.
