The title of Alexander’s debut solo exhibition, "remembering, forgetting, and remembering again," contemplates ideas of impermanence, memory, and the passage of time. His delicate installations of collected materials and gauzy constructed ‘drawings’ evoke a quiet sense of place and the search for beauty in ordinary things. Employing an ethereal vocabulary and limited color palette, he incorporates natural found materials along with lead, steel, glass, salt, wax, and paper collage elements. The works on view explore intersections between the physical body and the soul, and the interconnections between ourselves and the world around us.
Also presented are works by the four finalists. The Awards are given annually by the Forward Arts Foundation to the candidates recognized as the most dynamic emerging artists in the Atlanta area.
This exhibition is sponsored by Mickie Keough and Eileen Millard
