Alejandra Collazos

Alejandra Collazos


Alejandra Collazos is a Colombian-American visual artist who utilizes drawing and textiles to create psychological portraits. She embodies sweetness becoming fragile once exposed to the angst that is retrospective of her experience growing up; she portrays adolescents in turmoil using distressed, contorted posing and medical imagery, as well as items linked to childhood memories. Her work addresses the complexity of growing up with a disability or mental illness; adult morbidity disrupting the innocent bliss and naivety in children.
