Alex Gross paints intense images of an ominous future. In fact, the future isn’t so distant, it’s here. And it isn’t full of flying cars or “robot servants bringing us drinks,” as the artist points out in this interview. I caught up with this design-minded oil painter just before the opening of his new exhibition, Future Tense, alongside the release of his new monograph of the same name. This doubly meaningful title is poignant and accurately describes our precarious surroundings for the foreseeable future. The future’s so tense, you gotta wear shades. And if you’re a figure in an Alex Gross painting, those shades are probably Gucci.

Although very different in style and rendering, both artist’s work maintain an almost uncomfortable air of eeriness that infatuates rather than truly disturbs. The opening of Alex Gross’ Discrepancies and Esao Andrews’ Solid Void a beautiful offering of both these master painter’s latest work.

Bloody nosed iPod plugged-in women, snake-eyed Starbucks toting consumers. The imagery is hardly subtle, but explores a modern corporate culture in striking paintings. Here, Alex Gross discusses his newest solo show, Discrepancies, saying, “The imagery that I paint appears realistic, and yet, there is almost always something a bit off, different.”
