Noted as one of the finest upcoming figurative artists in the new American scene, Jason Shawn Alexander creates visually arresting works from his Los Angeles studio.

 

For Mourners Walk Over Maple Leaves at Corey Helford Gallery, Alexander’s enigmatic figures are filled with kinetic tension and languid grace, and he employs a rich palette of ambers, grays and okras to complement their moods. His narratives speak with raw honesty and pure emotion, expressing a spectrum of themes that are as dark and soulful as they are inspirational and exhilarating.
