Aleksandra Kosoń (b. 1992) is a Polish artist based in Wroclaw, Poland. She works in the media of drawing, printmaking, painting, and photography. Aleksandra is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland -BA in graphic art & design. She received her MA degree in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in London, UK. Her current research interest is in the areas of place, memory, and nostalgia. A landscape is the main inspiration for her work as she states that she perceives it as an imitation of art. She is interested in recording places around her by taking photographs and exploring the potential of images by transforming them using different techniques. 

She considers drawing as the most important part of her practice as she treats is as a primal way of expression. After her visit to Japan, where she participated in an artist residency and exhibited at Setouchi Triennale 2016, she became interested in Japanese landscape painting. The result of this is her current work. She is now working on big scale drawings to challenge herself in expressing her experiences of the landscape metaphorically.

"My research interests include such areas as printmaking as a medium, and the object nature of the work produced. Recently, my main focus concentrates on a landscape. I try to explore the subject matter of landscape as well as the visual perception of images and how those perceptions can be translated into pictorial representations. In my practice, I try to record and reproduce images of places and objects around me. I try to explore how we perceive and represent time and space, and also how we read and sense an actual physical place. Memory and space are two main components in my work. I try to create visual representations which can be seen as objects themselves but constructed on my personal feelings and memories."
