Steven Alexander on painting

“Paintings are specific visual events that accrue significance by their persistent ability to engage the viewer through time.

Built out of color and substance, they create places for the viewer’s consciousness, where unexpected resonances may occur, and where the stuff of life and love has corporeal presence – potential states of being, embodied in paint.” ~ Steven Alexander (2015)

Steven Alexander on abstraction

Tracer #3, 2014, 36 x 32 inches, acrylic on canvas

“An abstract painting is not a design project. Accomplished abstraction is NEVER just “about composition itself”. It participates in a long and diverse legacy of ontological investigation and proposition. It embodies, through specific resonances of color, configuration and physicality, a sense of place — psychological, physical, existential. It proposes the potential for meaning through the agency of visual metaphor and presence. It reflects a cosmology that is not anthropocentric or dogmatic, but concerned with open and ineffable experience, and built upon ambiguity, speculation, and uncertainty.” ~ Steven Alexander
