"Nocturnal Forms came to fruition directly following a trip to the Yucatan Peninsula. I was captivated by the jungle and the abundance and diversity of the plant life. I was also introduced to a new land form I had never witnessed. Cenotes are natural caves with a hole in the ceiling or they take the form of an open pit or sinkhole. It is a result of collapsed limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. You walk into a dark cave to see a small opening high above with a cropped view of the jungle, sunlight pours in like a spotlight illuminating a pool of fresh emerald water. The image is burned in my mind and upon arrival home I dove into this painting." - Jonny Alexander
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
comes to us with an introspective look at our natural planet. Hailing from California and spending his time exploring the state’s deserts, mountains and coastlines his art sheds light on the intricate patterns of the natural environment and the varying forms it takes.
“Drawing connections between the patterns I see in nature helps me to shape my understanding of reality and the world we live in,” Alexander says.
His paintings carry with them a backbone of narrative surrealism filtered through an upbringing in the surf and skate culture of Southern California giving it a vibrant and contemporary appearance.
You may find him at his desk painting small details, out painting a mural, in the printmaking studio or possibly even in the mountains somewhere crouched down looking very closely at a stick or some rocks.
Currently Jonny Alexander resides in Detroit, Michigan as 1xRUN’s In-House Master Printer. With a background in traditional printmaking techniques and almost 10 years screen printing experience he is now working with 1xRUN artists to produce hand pulled screen prints right here in the 1xRUN Detroit Studio.
