Vikky Alexander

Vikky Alexander is a photographer/sculptor living and working in Vancouver, where she teaches in the Visual Arts Department at the University of Victoria. Born in Victoria, British Columbia, Alexander attended the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and graduated with her BFA in 1979. Alexander's work explores the relationship between art, architecture, and nature, and in particular the modernist tendency for incorporating landscapes into buildings and the notion of domestic utopia. She is interested in how nature is experienced in a consumer society, which she investigates in her photographs of artificial environments as well as her use of mass-produced decorator materials such as wood veneers, wallpaper murals of landscapes, and mirrors.
