With a lush tactility and heady mystique, the painted worlds of Alexia Vogel translate the amoebic, sublime nature of nostalgia, fantasy and wanderlust into vast, immersive canvases and vivid works on paper. Her imagined paradises disavow the logic of time in order to reach a space and state more felt than perceived, spaces of sustained reverie and suspended sensation. With her mark making directed by instinct and spontaneity, Vogel allows the tactility of the paint and its autonomous movement across the surface of the canvas to direct her process. Moments of lucidity dissolve into states of dreamy meditation as the artist intuitively shifts between abstraction and figuration. More recent work sees notions of journey, passage and transition attaining more emphasis, while the artist continues to explore extremes of scale and further degrees of abstraction.
