    11:00 am-12:00 pm
    09/07/2019
    GALLERY 725 1250 Beach Boulevard Jacksonville Beach, Florida 32250

    Jacksonville, Florida (July 2019) -   Jacksonville, Florida is proud to welcome Alexandra Nechita: Reimagined in its United States debut. The extraordinary collection of new works will be on exhibition and available for acquisition at Gallery 725, Jacksonville’s premier Fine Art Gallery.  GALLERY 725.  The limited engagement exhibition will open in previews August 30th, 2019, and there are three not-to-be missed Artist appearances in the gallery:

    SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7TH, 2019: 11:00 AM – NOON    CHILDREN’S EVENT

     

    SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7TH, 2019                     6 :00 PM – 8:00 PM

     

    SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2019                        1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

     From a very young age, Alexandra Nechita has been hailed as a true Artistic Force. Born in Romania in 1985, Nechita immigrated to the United States at one and a half years old. She began drawing as a toddler. At seven she was working with oil paints and acrylics and by eight years of age, she held her first solo exhibition at a local Los Angeles Library. Alexandra exploded onto the art scene at the age of nine. Her talent was instantly recognized as crowds came to see her often monumental paintings. Art critics and the media began telling the world about this rarest of child prodigies - a master of line and color – an artist with a visual language of her own. That visual language has been unfolding over the last several years, resulting in an extraordinary new body of work that will tour North America in 2019 and 2020. These works represent the years and growth between her time as a celebrated prodigy and the now mature Artist who sees the world through a different lens; while still capturing elements that made her a force in the Art World.

    Image:  The Romanian Athenaeum Park Installation

    The Romanian born Artist was commissioned in 2017 by the City of Bucharest for a public art installation; her extraordinary sculptures grace the Romanian Athenaeum.  This body of work was made as a tool to help democratize the art experience by virtue of public display. The sculptures are made of two aluminum sheets welded together and hand painted by Alexandra Nechita.

    “This ensemble of 8 sculptures function both literally and figuratively as a dialogue about duality and paradoxes. Formally speaking, the sculptures themselves are duplicitous in their composition and structure.

    Thematically, I wanted to address the duality between what is and what is not, the parallels and the contradictions that exist between reality and fantasy, between duty and aspiration. The concept of time and timing as a judge of our fate, is represented in the seemingly intangible whimsy of each piece; the past, the present, the future, our

    human nature to incessantly put up a fight against time. This body of work is a reconciliation of all these conflicts.”- 

    Alexandra Nechita
