Opening Reception For Steven Alexander says
Gremillion &Co Fine Art presents an exhibition of new paintings by Steven Alexander, titled Manifest, opening April 9, 2015.

Alexander's new abstract works feature elemental geometric compositions infused with sensual surfaces and luminous color relationships. The show's title refers to the artist's interest in the regenerative potential of painting. Each work offers a unique sense of light, space and time, creating at once a glowing presence and a vessel for the viewer's imagination.

Art critic Peter Frank wrote of Alexander's work, "You can taste certain of these paintings; you can hear others. And, even with your hands behind your back, you can feel them all. Alexander proposes [...] a window whose frame essentially encompasses our sense of ourselves." Indeed, the artist states that he is "trying to build, out of color and substance, a place for the viewer's consciousness - states of being, embodied in paint."

Steven Alexander is a member of the venerable American Abstract Artists group in New York City. His work has been exhibited and collected extensively throughout the US and abroad. He holds an MFA in painting from Columbia University, where he studied with Richard Pousette-Dart and Dore Ashton. He lives and works in the hills of eastern Pennsylvania. Manifest is the ninth one-person exhibition of Alexander's work presented by Gremillion & Co.
He was recently awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant for 2015.

The exhibition will continue through May 9th, 2013.
