Aleksandra Scepanovic

Aleksandra Scepanovic questions our innermost by engaging the boundary between form and expectation. Her builds are strong physical preambles to wonder and potentiality, arrested in change. Enrolling the form into enduring transformation, Ms. Scepanovic’s forms give license to the mind to absorb context and effect. Her pursuits compare rational forms with intuition and provoke illuminating journeys to mystery.

 

Aleksandra’s sculptural work underscores her experience of migratory displacement, her enduring quest for a true likeness of an identity suspended in between war, peace, and culture.

 

Growing up in socialist Yugoslavia in the early 1980’s, Aleksandra Scepanovic was a restless youngster. 

 

The professional paths that followed have been winding, depositing her into careers of mystery, love, danger and wonder, always wonder. Her earliest snippet: archaeological sites in Serbia. Next, a brutal conflict in the Balkans of the 1990’s. It is there that her words — words of a war reporter — acquired their form.

 

Fast forward to a convalescing study of interior design in New York City in the 2000’s. On to the creation of a real estate business at the onset of the Great Recession in 2007.

 

To this day, the memories permeate the crust of time. They push through newfound purposes. They sing through the change of continents. They relish the trading of the New York City sidewalks with the wetlands of Ulster County. 

 

All along, the words and memories plunge Aleksandra into envelopes, into moving houses and people, into raising a child in the Hudson Valley, into learning the meaning of snow days.

 

Into pushing into clay.

 

Sculpture gives her the bravery to continue to explore and the option to learn to speak the languages she does not yet know.

 

Since late 2023, Aleksandra owns and operates a productive collective of sculptors in Woodstock, NY
