About Jenny Papalexandris
Jenny Papalexandris is a Visual Artist based in Australia. She holds a Master of Art (1997) and a Bachelor of Education (Art) 1987 from the University of NSW in Sydney.
She explores photography as a subjective response to the world of light and shadow. Her photographs are highly expressive and visually commanding. Thematically rich and diverse, her photography is imbued with a strong sense of poetry, symbolism and metaphor. They are personal records tracing universal themes of loss, sexual identity, the body as metaphor and nature.
The common thread in her diverse body of work is the impulse to ‘sense’ rather than ‘see.’ Her work reveals a singular vision explored with rigour and sensitivity, both visually and conceptually.
Jenny Papalexandris continues to exhibit both nationally and internationally. She has exhibited widely across Europe and America. Her work has been published in her book, 'Five Bells' published by the New Press, designed by EWS Design.
