Born in 1983, Alexia Dilaveri is a graduate of Nottingham School of Architecture with a Masters in Interior Design from Westminster University. Her research and work have focused on emo-tionally evocative spaces with a great interest in the idea of ‘metonymy’; how context in architec-ture can empower and even alter perception. Such a concept manifests on a subconscious level calling into play all the cultural, intellectual, and emotional references of both the individual and the collective. In her art she searches for the threshold, in which an idea of self, herself, is mani-fested. After her most notable creation to date, a beautiful daughter, she has committed to pur-suing her need for expression and exploration through fine art. Mainly self-taught, her work as an artist and personal journey, has been enhanced by post-graduate education in art psycho-therapy, developing the idea of personal narrative & myth in search of the boundaries that de-fine how we perceive ourselves.
“For me art is a meeting point, a place where we can uncover and share what words cannot de-fine”
