Alexander Marks

Painting, Booth 1008

Alex's work is currently focused on the subconscious. He begins by clearing himself of thought as much as possible. Within the silence there is inevitably a spark of interest. It is not yet a fully formed idea, but a point of departure. Through this process each new painting is discovered along the way, much like taking a walk in a completely new place. This approach carries with it an inherent uncertainty, but this sense of vulnerability is pivotal in creating work that is unique and meaningful. Alex's goal is not only to create something to look at, but to create something that looks at you.
