Alexandra Squire is an abstract artist from Bethesda, MD. Squire’s art style is very unique and minimalistic- it is the perfect blend of bold and vibrant colours with muted tones. Alexandra was always fond of art, especially abstract art. She believes that art has no restrictions or rules. You can keep on experimenting till you deem it suitable. Alexandra is not the only one in her family who has a passion for her art. In fact, her grandmothers and aunt were also actively involved in painting and artwork. She developed a knack for painting in her teenage years and it sustained even in her twenties and thirties. However, after that, she focused on post-graduation and became a mother of three due to which she had absolutely no time to continue her passion. Moreover, she was already an established journalist at that time. Thus, things were very intact and secure but she felt this urge to break free of the norm and pursue something that she has always had an interest in. On shifting to the East Coast, she decided to get back on track.
Her art portrays the frailty and changes that occur due to one’s choices in life. Her artworks are simple and the colour palette is extremely aesthetic. “My minimalist style is intended to give viewers the space they need to connect with the art. I am trying to tell all of our stories”, added Alexandra. Art depends on the interpretation of the viewer. It has a different meaning to everybody yet the unifying fact is its compelling power. Alexandra never concerned herself with keeping up with the trends. She likes to craft whatever she feels like at her own pace. That is her growth process. She claimed, “I am focused on creating art that is substantial, open to interpretation, and rich with depth and texture.”
She is also the founder of ‘Alexandra Squire Fine Art’. She wants it to showcase the finest artworks. She is least bothered about earning profit through her works. Alexandra wishes that through her paintings, people can connect themselves with the world of art and not feel distant as they do with most artists who craft complicated and mostly incomprehensible artworks. To shed more light on this, Alexandra said, “When people see my art, I want them to see something that is relatable and welcoming. The art world profits from its reputation of being exclusive. My work is meant to be inclusive.”
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)
