Alexandra Huddleston is an artist and writer whose work challenges and transforms our approaches to landscape. Her research begins on foot, with the mud on her boots and rain on her lens, and it is enriched by the literature, history, and mythology of place.
In the course of her career, Huddleston has lived for ten months in one of the manuscripts libraries of Timbuktu, supported by a Fulbright Research Grant, and she has walked three of the world’s most important pilgrimages, in Spain, France, and Japan. Walks in Ireland have been supported by residencies at Cow House Studios, 2016, Cill Rialaig, 2017, and Walking Birds’ Mountain II, 2019. Work in Scotland has been supported by Common Ground, 2017, and work in the Netherlands by the Jan van Eyck Academie, 2019. Her most recent work “Tracking” was awarded an ‘Honorable Mention in Fine Art,’ in the 14th Julia Margaret Cameron Award, 2019.
