Something Happened.
Alex’s works for this show are slice of a complex and vibrant moment inside of what is often a mundane piece of reality.. Each piece is an effort to extract a cross-section from a commonplace experiences and show their wonder. His theme, “Something happened”, is an effort to illustrate the idea that we are all part of a bigger stories. Each piece is a slice out of these moments, moments we all share.

In the end I made 16, 5×7 collages. They are a fractured series of vignettes. I start by creating geometric patterns onto a 5×7 piece of paper, this serves as the foundation for the college. The collage is made up of colored paper and Ink layered between matte media. I cut small shapes, hands, heads, jaws, teeth, hair and beards out of colored paper. I spend a few days making patterns, and pieces, like stage settings. The narratives start to manifest at this point and decisions are made. Pieces are mounted and drawing embellishes are added between the layers of matte media. Some where before the final coat I attach it to a block of birch wood. The materials are simple and  I enjoy the process of building them up to create an effect of depth and atmosphere.

No.5 of 16, “Remember Me as I Was”. This illustrates the moment my dog first saw me after I shaved off my beard. Stepping into the kitchen, clean shaven and smelling like product, I startled her. She, for a moment, did not know who I was and readied herself for trouble.
