Alessandra Maria’s Mystical Muses
Alessandra Maria is making waves with her mysterious, mixed-media art since graduating from Pratt Institute in 2012. Her work depicts long-haired, nymph-like figures adorned with gold leaf-laden flower petals and butterflies. The monotone color of each piece enhances the slightly menacing or melancholy air of the figures whose gazes range between timid, apprehensive and sinister.
