Alexandrya Eaton is a contemporary Canadian visual artist working with paint and textiles, incorporating a similar vibrant palette and feminine icons across all mediums.
An exploration in feminine identity, Eaton's studio practice examines phases of womanhood and the powerful force that exists between generations of women drawing from the artist's own personal family experience.
Eaton's recent collection of work, "Becoming", took five years to complete and involves both painting and rug hooking. Inspired by the life of her grandmother, "Becoming" resulted in a solo traveling exhibition which will be shown for the fifth time this summer in 2022.
In 2021, Eaton was honoured with a retrospective survey exhibition and full colour publication which examined thirty years of her art practice, at the Owens Art Gallery, Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. "Everything in Between" written and curated by 3E Collective, provided insightful observations on Eaton's contemporary art practice, in relations to personal histories, experiences in motherhood, and social notions of femininity.
Alexandrya Eaton graduated with a BFA from Mount Allison University - Class of 1991. Over the past three decades, she has had over forty-five solo exhibitions and her work hangs in numerous private and public collections.
