Alexandra Sutton, art and art history instructor at Belmont, was recently featured in Nashville Arts for her ongoing exhibition. Her installations are a part of Material Passage at COOP Gallery. Sutton’s work focuses on ‘dis-membering’ and ‘re-membering’ landscape through the labor of memory, inspired by and gathered from her trip through the American Southwest this past year.
Sutton received her MFA degree in studio art from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Her work includes sculpture, photography, installation and video. Interested in memory, nature and the body, her work involves experimental practices in growing crystals, body casting and more. She focuses on mapping time within physical objects, mimicking natural processes on a human scale and investigating the human body as a landscape, a negative space and an instrument. She has had noteworthy exhibitions at Mixed Greens Gallery in Chelsea, New York City and Marginal Utility in Philadelphia, PA.
Her current exhibition can be viewed until January 27 at COOP Gallery, 507 Hagan Street, Nashville. The exhibit is open Tuesday through Thursday from 2 to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
