New York based artist Josh Alexander will unveil his most recent work at the Giacobetti Paul gallery in Brooklyn next month. In his latest exhibition, INWARD, Alexander presents a visual narrative of human emotions through the use of color, texture and shapes. The show will include several series of work, including collections of emotions, scars, and abstract figures. In his new works, Alexander captures honesty in introspection ­­ and reveals his continual influence from human nature.

Josh Alexander uses art to manifest truth. More commonly known for his paintings of the figure, still life’s, and self­portraits, the artist has recently taken a new direction with his work in pursuit of finding truth through imagery. “I don't set out to produce art about one subject or another. I'm never without a sketchbook so I am constantly drawing. Sometimes the drawings are left in the book and other times they develop into more in­depth ideas. A few months ago, I found myself drawing visual representations of emotions. This led to an exploration of art in a deeper and more personal level,” says Alexander. Alexander studied figure drawing under John Thrasher at The Ohio State University where he earned a degree in Architecture in 2000. After moving to New York in 2002, he studied painting under Robert Neffson at The Art Students League of New York before joining Madarts where he works from his studio in Brooklyn.
