Alexander Cheves

Sometimes it’s better for the artist himself to describe his work, partly so we don’t have to, but also because he’s usually better at it. Here’s to you, Alexander Cheves: “My work is fabricated primarily from wood, plaster, concrete, steel, and paint and is formed into ambiguous, free-formed shapes and designs that are drawn from hills, mountains, highways, buildings, clouds, swimming pools, etc. Each piece is an encapsulated event that moves to imply aesthetic relationships between man-made, industrial structures and the California landscape that absorbs them.”
