About Suffolk Artist Zangmo Alexander

A visual artist living in Suffolk, East Anglia, UK, I make mixed media abstract art, oil paintings, watercolour paintings, art photography, mono-prints and expressive drawings exploring the meeting point of art, spirituality, meditation and psychology.

Making art is always inspired by a deep commitment to meditation and mindfulness in which I aim to express both the personal and the timeless in life. From 2007-2014 I was a Buddhist nun in the Tibetan tradition. Prior to 2007,  my work was influenced by Jungian psychology, art therapy, Indian art and the perennial philosophy. 

I have several long term projects on the go in various art media. Often these art projects are autobiographical while also reflecting on universal themes. For example, Woman of a Certain Age is a series of art photographs reflecting on bodily impermanence and feelings of invisibility. The Hotel Project is a series of digital colour photographs exploring the transitory, illusory nature of life's journey. Black and White Luminograms, - made in a traditional darkroom without a camera - explore light, physical form and ambiguity, the unknowability of anything. 

My art work, including commissioned pieces, is in private collections in Europe and USA. I am a speaker on art and meditation at conferences, give lectures and tuition, have appeared on Channel 4 TV and written a paper on Buddhism and the Arts for Arts Council England.
