Biography

In his drawings, etchings, and paintings, Alex Cerveny invents an imaginative visual language through which he transforms childhood memories and emotions into works “constructed in the form of a dream,” as he describes. In his works, Cerveny melds the purely fantastical with references to current events, pop culture, history, literature, and religion, which he compares to pages from a notebook or a diary. Like the Day We Met (2011), for example, features a male figure, dressed in a toga, approaching a circular brick tower out of which a female head emerges like smoke, a scene at once reminiscent of Biblical narrative and a universal expression of love and longing.
