Meet the Artist!
RECEPTION: November 9th, 4 - 7 p.m.
Alex Boeschenstein (U.S., born 1988) is a Seattle-based interdisciplinary artist rooted in the traditions of drawing and printmaking. Since 2012 his artistic practice has evolved to include digital collage, video, sculpture, 3D modeling, game design, and installation.
Alex has exhibited his work in Gallery 4Culture, Glass Box Gallery, Out of Sight (at King Street Station), The Alice Gallery, AXIS Art Gallery, and Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, OH.
Alex's artwork explores the tension between depictive and physical space through an approach where tactile processes and forms of digital media are seamlessly interwoven.
In both the tactile and digital realms he draws from a variety of technical visual languages and information visualization techniques, including exploded-view schematics, architectural floor plans and 3d models.
“Fields of Irisarri” is a body of work consisting of non-reproducible woodblock prints created
through accumulating myriad layers of superimposed rubbings. Each layer either nestles
its topography into the strata of the existing field or negligently buries sections
of the previous markings underground. The process illustrates that there are only
of additive mark-making devoid of erasure: one in which the additive mark shrouds nothing because the substrate is a tabula rasa, and the other in which the additive mark respectfully interlaces its body into its new environment.
