Alexandra Jonscher is an American-Australian artist, creative producer and curator who practices in painting and new media. She studied Painting at Sydney College of the Arts and was awarded the ‘Zelda Stedman Young Artist Scholarship’ in 2019. Her undergraduate degree show was selected for presentation in ‘Hatched: The National Graduate Show’ at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art in 2020. She has shown in regional galleries including Bankstown Art Centre and Gosford Regional Galleries and has been a selected finalist in the ‘Fisher’s Ghost Art Award (Open Category)’ at Campbelltown Art Centre. In 2023, she curated and co-produced a temporary public art project for Sydney WorldPride called the ReVITALise Rainbow Tunnels Project commissioned by Transport for NSW. Working with Andrew Christie, she collaborated on an AR activation and video artwork titled ‘SlipStream’, that was displayed in a pedestrian tunnel in Ashfield and at Sydney’s Wynyard Station. The project was acclaimed by the Asia Pacific Place Leaders award as the best Small Scale Place Project in 2024. Alexandra is currently represented by DARLINGS and has works held in private collections in Australia, the Asia-Pacific and the USA.

Seeing her work as an artist as an expanded, multi-disciplinary practice, in 2021 she founded the recycled clothing label Dylan Alexander as an extension of her art practice, translating her paintings into wearable, one-off artworks. Alexandra is also a Curator and Project Manager for the public art consultancy Cultural Capital where she delivers public art projects and consults on art strategies for the private and public sectors across Australia.
