Alexandra Robinson

Alexandra Robinson is a visual artist who uses coded language and symbols to explore ideas of identity and place. She grew up in the military with her immediate family, an intersection of her Mexican and Jewish heritages. Robinson was a child of worlds in which histories, language and religion were repressed or traded for other identities and it is these themes that continually inform her work. She received her MFA from the University of Cincinnati in Ohio and currently teaches at St. Edward’s University in Austin where she is a Professor of Art. Robinson lives with her husband and two daughters shuttling from studio to rehearsal to practice. She has exhibited throughout the country and internationally, most recently at the Salina Art Center, Charlotte Street Foundation, The Contemporary Austin, and Women and Their Work.
