Alexandrya Eaton (she/her) is a contemporary Canadian visual artist whose practice includes painting, textiles, sculpture, and weaving. Eaton’s current research examines how fabric manipulations can be incorporated into painting practice, and how the canvas, a woven material, accepts these folds and stitches, conceptually exploring layers and connections of material and memory.
In a practice spanning over thirty years, Eaton has had close to fifty solo exhibitions, participated in numerous group exhibitions, and her work can be found in many private and public collections. In addition to two solo exhibitions this year in 2023, Eaton’s work will be part of the exhibition, Dissident Bodies, curated by Alisa Arsenault, looking at how parenting influences creative practice, at the Owens Art Gallery, in Sackville, as well as group exhibitions in Vancouver, British Columbia, and New York, New York, USA.
Eaton’s work has been acquired by: the New Brunswick Art Bank; Mount Allison University; RBC Dominion Securities; Aliant Telecom; Nesbitt Burns; NB Power; the UNB Art Centre; Toronto Dominion Bank; Atlantic Lottery Corporation; Centre d’Art de Baie-Saint-Paul; and the Masterworks Foundation, among many other public and corporate collections.
