We are pleased to announce an exhibition Interpersonal Relationships 対人関係 by Alexandra Abbatiello on July 22 (Sat) and 23 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Alexandra Abbatiello is a sculptor from the United States. She received her BFA in 3-Dimensional Arts from Indiana State University in Indiana. She is currently an MFA candidate at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
She creates work that relates to how people become themselves; their personalities, traits, experiences, and personal growth. She is interested in all aspects of a person’s personality, both the hidden and the portrayed. Her current work has been about the relationships one has with the people around them and their journey to form these bonds. Her personal connection to these topics stems from her own experiences in life. She recognizes that she is left with impressions from each place she travels to, every experience and memory captures potential influences and creates inspiration for her as the artist.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
With the work I am creating I want to discuss the communication skills people have as well as my own abilities in forming new bonds.
