 Artwork by David Alexander

In Between: Phantom Algorithms Joining Worlds features artworks by David Alexander, a figurative painter and sculptor, side by side with his children, Luca Alexander and Sienna Alexander.

A Washington, DC-based artist, David Alexander uses visual and literary motifs like the totem to “explore spaces that are caught between one realm and another, silent and paused, where algorithms and the living wander and linger like phantoms linked by their dependency on each other.” His paintings reveal the regenerative nature of light, lighting and color.

Alexander employs a non-traditional process for creating his artwork. “The paintings are the result of a combined digital and analog process. I layer paint with the digital derivatives of the original painted image. The figures are characters from another world. They portray figurative allegories of experience, thought and emotion. They are often portrayed in transformative states using hyperactive color and lighting.”

Alexander earned a Master of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 1999 and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute in Chicago in 1997. He worked as an Information Architect in digital marketing for 10 years, creating strategies for brands like Sony Pictures, Coca-Cola, and Marriott Hotels. He mentored with several prominent American artists such as Southwest Sculptor Luis Jiménez, contemporary art icon Stanley Whitney and Chicago Imagist Ray Yoshisda.

Alexander exhibits in major US cities, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. While living in Los Angeles he participated in emblematic events with Cannibal Flower, Hanger 1018, and The Hive Gallery. His work is in private and corporate collections, including The Nippon Steel Corporation.
