Alexandra Posen is a graduate of Brown University and L'Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris. She studied physical and visual theater with an emphasis on mask making and puppetry, which lead to her performance works in the late nineties. In 2000 she began her ongoing wax drawing series, Fields, and soon after co-founded Zac Posen, where as creative director she worked for nearly a decade to establish the label as a global brand. Alexandra's extensive knowledge of couture fabric and technique has translated into a unique formal language in her recent abstract paintings. Posen's work has been exhibited at Lynch Tam, NYCAMS, Temp Space and The Watermill Center, reviewed in Bullet magazine and featured in numerous blogs.
Alexandra lives and works in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
