About Artist:

Alexa N. Bonney H. is a recent graduate of Drury University, where she holds degrees in Fine Arts, Art History, and Architecture. She paints primarily using non-local color and recently began experimenting with intense neon hues. Her use of color allows her to continuously analyse and experiment as she paints.n Her work is privately owned by families in MO, TX, FL, and Washington D.C. To date, she has exhibited in art galleries in MO with a solo exhibition to open this February in TX.

About Artwork:

"Family Tree" is my first work that examines the uncanny. A term which here means, "familiar yet unfamiliar". It describes how an object can seem human yet not be related to it in the slightest. Coined by Sigmund Freud, he used this term during his exploration of his client?s fear of death. They would project their death onto other objects, often animals.

?Death and the mind are not new topics, especially in art. Francesco Goya began a series of dark paintings in a desperate attempt to come to terms with the futility of living during the last years of his life. German Expressionism sought to represent complex dark emotions with exaggerated shape and stroke. Even Odilon Reydon, a surrealist painter, gave his inner demons form through paint to render them powerless.

While these did play a role in this work, I desired to maintain a sense of humor that is not often found when exploring dark topics, though it is found in children?s entertainment. Dr. Seuss books cover a range of mature topics, for example war, but do so using symbolism, prose, and whimsy. The Haunted Mansion, a ride at Disneyworld, might have been too scary had it not been for its use of puns and silly-looking ghosts.

?In "Family Tree", I explored these ideas to create an uncanny juxtaposition between macabre material and its whimsical presentation.

-And thus this work was born.

?So please, won?t you meet

My Fine feathered friends?

May you never see birds

The same way again.

XOXO Alexa
