About Alexandra Cicorschi
Alexandra Cicorschi is a woodworker artist based in San Francisco, California. She studied at the Bucharest National University of Arts in Romania and holds an MFA from the Bauhaus University in Germany. Her passion for woodworking developed after she moved to California in 2011 and started experimenting with locally sourced materials. Her current medium is largely based on the practice of salvaging and repurposing discarded wood objects. In finding, stripping, and re-milling salvaged wood, she brings forward the intrinsic value of objects and their ability to transform. Her abstract compositions are inspired by personal memories as well as influenced by the history of her found materials.
