Alex Gregory is an artist-researcher whose work combines the materiality of analog techniques with digital manipulation. She recently completed an MFA in Criticism and Curatorial Practices at OCAD University. In 2017, she graduated from The Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) in Portland OR, with a BFA in Communication Design. Although seemingly different, graphic design and curatorial practices visually guide the viewer/audience through a conceptual premise. She considers how both disciplines are extremely spatial (in digital and physical applications) and require care towards the ways in which space is occupied and how audiences interact with their surroundings. Alex has worked as a Digital Designer for a variety of corporate companies. Her design work has been featured in She Shreds Magazine, Bitch Media and SAD Mag. Alex has exhibited work in Portland OR and Tkaronto (Toronto ON).
