Voters selected Alexandra Becker-Black’s watercolor painting entitled Prey for the People's Choice Award in this year's Au Naturel: The Nude in the 21st Century exhibit.
Throughout the duration of the show, which opened on January 23rd and was on display through March 20th, visitors were invited to cast their vote for the People’s Choice Award.
In her artist statement, Becker-Black explains that she “aspires to capture an ethereal beauty that transcends reality by using the body itself as an emotional medium,” and “finds beauty to be subtle, simple, elegant, and pure, stripped down to reveal the bare essence of what is true.”
Becker-Black studied art at both PNCA and OCAC in Portland as well as overseas in Italy, earned a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 2007, and is currently based in Portland. Follow this link for additional information about the artist and her work.
