Alexandra Kennedy Biography

Alexandra Kennedy is a painter and lecturer in history and theory of art at the Dunedin School of Art, Dunedin, New Zealand. Her practice is located between painting and drawing; between object and process. Kennedy's project is also located within a context which engages with the zero gesture in painting, addressing the critical relevancy of painting and its ability to reflect upon and engage with its own histories. Appearing as random marks and erasures on a field which forms part of a larger, potentially limitless field, the works are suggestive of digital junk, voids and empty spaces and can be read as being in the middle of something, as process, as becoming.

Hence the work makes use of the notion of the holes in space created by electronic and digital technologies, reworking them as an aesthetic of the void. Her practice also encompasses writing on contemporary painting. Recent published articles and conference papers also focus on issues such as the end of subject matter and contemporary zero gestures in painting.
