Alex's Pursuits

Alex continues his investigations of making via his body, clothed and unclothed, covered with graphite, oils, printing inks, dry pigments, and in the case above, silkscreen drawing fluid. After spreading the fluid over his torso, he pressed his body against a screen for eventual printing. Although the resulting impression was not what he expected, very flat and lacking detail, he will revisit the process with some adjustments in the risks he takes. Alex says, "For an artist to take risks, I feel that they must step out of what they know and feel they have an understanding for, and move into a realm of emptiness and infinite possibility."
