Alexander is known for her work as a photo-conceptualist, creating photographic readymades by producing collages of found images. Taken from magazines, advertising, and other popular media, the images develop a critical discourse on consumer society. Midway between architecture and landscaping, these two murals establish dialogue between visual elements representing nature and culture. Alexander’s work examines from a critical perspective the incorporation of landscapes inside buildings and the appropriation of nature as indoor decor.
