Artist Statement

My Statement is the Work

Art is my personal Language that has developed over time.

It is my voice, my refuge, my savior.

Sometimes it speaks easily to me and sometimes, it's a struggle.

Deadlines help.

How can I explain or put into words this place I go to?

This portal that I am able to enter into a zone...

Gravity does not exist...

I see the extraordinary in the ordinary...

and recognize their quiet beauty...

especially if it has a lived a long life and has gathered stories and rust.

The intangible speaks to me. I live in Art and Incognito.

I am a lucky one.

‘Ms. Alexa Grace

Alexa Grace’s illustrated sculpture is soft spoken and fragile with an understated wit. These characteristics become understandable if you are fortunate enough to know the artist. She is certainly soft spoken, but if you listen attentively, all of her charm and humor come through in no uncertain terms. As for her fragility, I don’t know. The last time I saw her she was about to embark on a life of crime. On the way to U&lc, to deliver her work to be photographed, she (inadvertently?) dropped a slug in an IRT subway turnstile. “Tilt!” The exhibition, Bells rang, sirens whined, the entire 10th Precinct converged on poor Alexa as though she had perpetrated a hold-up at Chase Manhattan.

Alexa studied at Philadelphia College of Art, Art Students League and School of Visual Arts 

(“but I never graduated.”). Her work has been reproduced in many prominent magazines and has been  shown in galleries from New York to Santa Barbara via Rochester, NY. Alexa thinks of her sculpture as a natural  extension of drawing. Her technique is etching-like, with accidental and controlled brush-on, rubbed in oxides. She seems to achieve greater textural effects, through this medium of ink on plaster, than can be achieved on paper or canvas. Each piece is like a small stage set with little cartoon characters as the actors. Read Alexa Grace’s delightful captions to get an insight into how she thinks and how her little people perform.’


201@105 is located at 105 Mulberry Street, on the 2nd floor, in Room 201, on the northwest corner of Canal Street in Lower Manhattan, New York City. The gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays from noon to 7PM, and by appt. For additional information or queries, please contact Toma Fichter at 212-925-7999 or email at
