Aleksandra La Greca

After completing her Bachelor Degree Aleksandra retreated to an Orthodox monastery located on the banks of the Snowy River amongst 600 acres of bushland. Living there for 5 years, focusing on contemplation and quietude, Aleksandra developed a love for stillness, the land and nature. Aleksandra is now married and has chosen to make the Snowy Mountains her home. She works in oils from a small light-filled studio space.

Focusing primarily on still life arrangements and landscapes, Aleksandra is inspired daily by her surrounds – the Monaro plains, mountains, trees, rocks, creeks, rivers and wildlife. Her recent works involve time consuming mark making, particularly in backgrounds and negative spaces. Attempting to translate the beauty and energy emitted by the subject onto the canvas, Aleksandra does not shy away from a more traditional and considered approach to paint application.

Aleksandra was accepted by the VCA for a fine arts degree in 2016 upon leaving the monastery; but chose not to continue her formal studies. Instead she has worked on developing her practice in a solitary way. Seeking advice from mentors, books, and her own practical experience on the path of her artistic development.
