ALEX OSBORNE

Breaking with Realism
September 2 - September 22, 2017
Reception: Thursday September 7, 2017 6-8 PM

Alex Osborne is a painter drawn to motion. His work is explosive, sending projectiles of color careening outward. This choice to pursue action is a stand against complacency, a retort to societal pressures. “In today’s society I think we feel stuck in a lot of ways, whether it be a job or a relationship,” Osborne says. “However, just like rivers flow and paint spreads, life is constantly moving.”

With single-word titles that encourage reflection crashing against pop culture references and screwball evocations of electric cheese, Osborne takes his viewers on a trip that verges from the psychedelic to the lovely, creating new space for himself and anyone who dares to follow. He is always drifting through different mediums, exploring resin, acrylic, and digital painting techniques. For Osborne, experimentation is a vital act. An artist must be free of fear. During his first painting class, he watched his peers don suits to protect their clothing. He looked down at his own t-shirt and jeans and saw a second canvas.

Alex Osborne lives and works in Williamsburg, New York City.
