ARTIST STATEMENT

Alexandra Johansson is a crafter based in Stockholm. Her fascination with nature and architecture is clearly visible in her objects – wind, rain, trees, clouds, shadows, light, colors. The balance between simple and difficult, diffuse and clear, is the foundation of her practice. She, almost exclusively, work with everyday utilitarian objects and vessels. Her expertis is in plaster and clay – casting and turning on the lathe is two of her working methods.

Alexandra holds a Bachelor and a Master from Konstfack University and she is running her own studio in Gröndal in Stockholm together with her colleague Cornelia Dahlin. She also works as a teacher in ceramics and plaster at different schools around Sweden. She has been in several group exhibitions in places as; Sven-Harrys Konstmuseum, Strindbergs museum, Way Gallery and Something Something. She has been given several stipendiums from Fabrikör JL Eklunds Hantverksstiftelse, Konstfack Stipendium and Den Nordiska Första S:t Johannislogens Jubelfond.
