Alexandra Baraitser

Design Of Our Time’ at Amp Gallery.

Alexandra Baraitser studied at Chelsea College of Art in 1995 and went on to win the Abbey Scholarship in Painting at the British School at Rome in 1997. Baraitser’s paintings are a celebration of contemporary design and architecture and are based on images she selects from vintage magazines. Through painting she hopes to invite discussion of the relationship between ‘high art’ abstraction and iconic design. Baraitser’s work has recently been selected for the ArtCan Open (2018) and the Cambridge Show, Kettle’s Yard (2019). In 2002 she was awarded an Arts Council England award, and previously a Commissions East arts award for mentoring with Rachel Thomas, Curator of Exhibitions, Irish Museum of Modern Art. Her works are housed in art collections around the world including Design Centre Tasmania and Clare Hall, Cambridge University.

Amp gallery is run by Maverick Projects.
