Our Stories: Patterns + What We Inherit


Artist Biography

For her first solo show, Alexandra Jamieson found inspiration in trauma healing therapies like EMDR, as well as scientific research into epigenetic inheritance, and the basic building blocks of human life, nucleotides. Patterns of healing, epigenetic trauma, and intergenerational expressions of hope, addiction, mental health crises, and loss are explored in this robust series of watercolors and mixed-media paintings.

Jamieson designs a gallery space in Brooklyn’s historic Red Hook neighborhood, as a center of healing for the communities impacted by overlapping natural and human disasters. The exhibition also includes Jamieson’s first soundwork, a layering of breathing techniques, which visitors can listen to with headphones as they view specific works inspired by self-soothing techniques.
