About

This vertical abstract acrylic and oil painting on linen is composed of rectangular blocks of vibrant color. Warm red and magenta are balanced by a deeply saturated dark purple and light brown. In the lower right corner the rectangle of beige paint is layered over a contrasting bright teal blue. A layer of bright cobalt blue on the edges of the painting offsets the warm hues in the composition. Signed, titled and dated by artist on the verso. Steven Alexander is an American artist who makes abstract paintings characterized by luminous color, sensuous surfaces and iconic configurations. His works are composed as sensate visual events that embody potential states of being. They invite meditative encounters with the viewer's perception and imagination. Born in 1953 in West Texas, Alexander spent his early years observing the vast skies and flat expanses of the southwest plains. He moved to New York in 1975, completing an MFA in painting at Columbia University where he studied with Richard Pousette-Dart and Dore Ashton. A member of the American Abstract Artists group in New York, he has been awarded grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the Belin Foundation, a studio residency at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, and numerous public commissions. His work has been widely exhibited and collected throughout the United States and abroad. Alexander has been visiting artist at Parsons School for Design and Bowdoin College, artist-in-residence at Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy, and is currently Professor of Visual Arts at Marywood University. He maintains a home and studio in the hills of eastern Pennsylvania.
