Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, August 4, 2013 10:40 AM

Alex explains, “…my works do not belong to me, I only take them from some informational environment and return them there.”  This environmental approach allows the audience to view, enter and explore is painting in a raw and uninhibited way.  Alex crafts scenes that, though fantastical, appear everyday and natural.

My initial attraction to work was ignited by how they are all lit.  Regardless if the light source appears natural or artificial (like when we can assume it comes from the sun or a human’ head), Alex allows the light to respond realistically to the other objects and people in the scene.  Another important aspect is the vantage point that the viewer is given.  Depending on the terrain, or absence of it, we are placed in a relatively logical spot (given the acceptance of abstracted physics).  We are not confronted with his work, we are accepted into it like it is our own.
