Alex Box studied and exhibited as an installation artist before training to become a make-up artist, with her main focus on relationships between the body and the environment. As a make-up artist, she went on to explore this relationship between art, science, nature and the magical. Never viewing the face as a limitation, but rather as a canvas with no boundary, Alex creates looks for designers including Gareth Pugh, Alexander McQueen, Biba and Chanel. She is also the Creative Director for the make-up brand she developed, Illamasqua.
In her words…
Neche Collection visually documents materials collected by my grandfather Neche Eugenio Hadad. A Cuban Exile of Lebanese descent, accountant, collector and sometimes thief. I acquired many of his belongings. I created this project to be both an archive and a source of continued inspiration.
The project consists of a daily photo post from the collection and each week I create and print a limited edition screen print inspired by one or more of the objects feature in the collection that week.
