Berggruen Gallery (San Francisco) showed work by John Alexander at Art Basel Miami Beach 2016.
Alexander hails from Beaumont, Texas and spent his formative years camping and fishing in the area. This is east Texas which is geographically closer to Louisiana with it's bayous and forests than the more open areas in the west of the vast state. He attended Lamar University in Beaumont. He currently splits time between NYC and the East Hamptons.
There is something almost classical about his work and yet he also makes the realistic look like an abstract explosion of color. Of course, nature does that too. Find out more at www.johnalexanderstudios.com.
