“Art can sometimes intimidate the public, I want the viewer to feel comfortable and to enjoy looking at the piece. Hoping that, each time they come back to it, they discover something new”
B.A. D’Alessandro has created sculptures in a variety of materials, but has been concentrating on steel for the last twenty years. Steel lends itself well to straight lines, angles and curves; the influence of geometric shapes is apparent in her sculptures. Taking “pre-formed” stock pieces of steel, the artist arranges and organizes them to create strong, balanced structures. Painting them black gives each its own elegance. Adding color in the past few years to selected pieces has given them a new boldness.
B.A. studied welding techniques at Silvermine Art Center, New Canaan with David Boyajian and followed him to his studio at The Sculpture Barn in New Fairfield, Connecticut. Presently, she is working with Bob Perucci at The 3rd Rail Studio, New Rochelle, New York.
Born in the Bronx and raised in Hartsdale, B.A. resides in White Plains, New York. She attended two Westchester County colleges, receiving an Associate of Arts degree at Briarcliff College and a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors in Studio Art with an emphasis in sculpture at Marymount College.
An award-winning sculptor exhibiting throughout Westchester and Fairfield counties, (The Katonah Museum of Art, The Carriage Barn, The Flinn Gallery and The Sculpture Barn), she is a member of Mamaroneck Artists Guild and past President of the New Rochelle Art Association (2014 - 2019).
