ARTIST STATEMENT

Alexander works with wood and paper. Basic elements of these materials are the lines: in one case they discern the physicality of the wood, in the other they run on the surface of the paper through Indian ink or incision. In both cases, the intertwining makes up an unquantifiable geometry as for example in a rectangular grid with a tortuous internal logic. At times one recognizes figures or parts of them rather like a wooden swing recalls the structure of branches but none of these associations of ideas is completely resolved. Nowhere will you find a natural or human image. It seems more likely that one may describe these works as material gestures, traces of gestures, evidence of a confrontation between the hand and the material. There is a dialogue between the artist and the media, because it is not simply there to “obey”. The artwork is rather the result of a study of the characteristics of the media and what it inspires in the artist through improvisation and using tools at hand to be used according to the changing emotional state of the artist.
