City in Flux by Alexandra Momin

Alexandra Momin is a New York City based artist interested in combining mediums to create painterly abstractions. Focusing on the ever-changing landscape of the city, she challenges our perception of our environment by digitally layering photographs with video stills. Her photography background and interest in movement and color merge with her use of video, which was scrambled due to a chance encounter with faulty software. Using this “beautiful mistake” became an allegory for the city’s complex and multifarious fac?ades. The images are printed on the second surface of acrylic using UV inks, which give a material presence to the landscape while maintaining an airy, dreamy quality.
