steven alexander: painting about painting


steven alexander @ minimal exposition

my work explores relations that reside in the constant flux of pure sensory events. i am interested in the interaction between the painting and the viewer's imagination, and in the painting's potential to generate unspecified mobile meaning.

color operates in this work and in the world as a kind of pure energy - dynamic, capricious, evocative. the surfaces emphasize the sensual nature of the painting process, translucent layers accumulating to create a specific timbre. the simple iconic configurations inevitably imply archetypal tensions and dualities as interdependent aspects of an animate whole.

i am trying to build, out of color and substance, a place for the viewer's consciousness - where past and future merge with the present moment, where unexpected associations and resonances may occur, and where the stuff of life and love has corporeal presence - states of being, embodied in paint.
