Alex Achaval
The Merge. Original.

2017

$2,057.63

About

Born in 1986, Alex Acheval’s work can be described in many different categories, especially contemporary portraiture. With the added uncharacteristic element or found object seen throughout the “paintbrush girl” series, in which wooden brushes are applied to canvas or wood panel after seeing such an idea in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Acheval’s work represents the obstacles one must overcome in life, of overpainting and pretending it never existed or embracing it. Achaval creates a unity between disjointed elements as if they were always meant to exist together. His works can be described as painted collages which range in subject matter and theme, but almost all feature a strong female form with a world of imagery colliding around her. By not following logical criteria, but instead basing only on subjective associations and formal parallels, the viewer is able to experience a new personal association. The title The Merge seems fitting for the piece where Avechal incorporates pastel pinks and blues to create a softer image of a woman looking out into the distance, where the introduction of the license plate which stands out dramatically gives the piece a much more youthful tone.
