Peter Alexander: To Dive For

Los Angeles artist Peter Alexander opens To Dive For, an exhibition of new paintings at Brian Gross Fine Art. This quintessentially Californian artist, renowned for his paintings, sculptures and installations based on light, continues his explorations working with acrylic and oil on aluminum. The exhibition opens Thursday, November 6 with a reception from 5:30–7:30pm and will be on view through January 3, 2009.

Peter Alexander has been investigating properties of light through many years of living in Southern California. He first became recognized for his cast resin sculptures in which he played with translucencies and geometric form in a minimal approach of the 1970's. Subsequently, he experimented with numerous techniques, turning to painting, drawing and lithography in work inspired by the Los Angeles sunsets and the vast array of city lights viewed from a plane landing at LAX at night. In his latest paintings, Alexander creates stunning waterscapes working with acrylic and oil on aluminum. Through many thin layers of translucent color, the artist captures the flickering refraction of sunlight through depths of water.

Peter Alexander was born in Los Angeles in 1939. He received his BFA and MFA from the University of California, at Los Angeles. His work has been widely exhibited in the United States and abroad and can be found in almost all major collections, including: Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; Fort Worth Art Museum, Texas; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California; Minneapolis Institute of Art, Minnesota; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, California; Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Vancouver Museum of Art, British Columbia, Canada. This is Peter Alexander’s sixth exhibition with Brian Gross Fine Art.
