Alex Waggoner lives in Charleston, South Carolina and paints landscapes from her surroundings with a dreamy color palette and meticulous paint application. Through her exploration of contrasting architectural styles, she aims to encourage a thoughtful dialogue concerning Charleston's historical significance, forgotten spaces, and the impact of gentrification. During her residency Waggoner will focus on the Gibbes Miniature Portrait Collection as inspiration for a new body of work focusing on Charleston architecture as token and talisman.
