Artist’s Statement:

Alexandra Spingarn is looking at the world of fantasy and invention in young children. As a painter and printmaker, she has always asked the question, why we make art? What is the message?
The main protagonist in this series, the Clown Pirro, has historically been symbolic of Art, Music, Dance and Theater in the world. He brings enchantment and beauty to children (and to all of us) as a distraction in an otherwise chaotic and difficult world.There is a strong undercurrent of symbolism in her work.
Ms. Spingarn handles oil paint in an expressionistic fashion, using colors and brushwork that is both vibrant and enriched with luminosity.
