Alex Osborne, ‘Album’, 2016, Flat Space Art

Alex Osborne is a Brooklyn based artist whose work stems from his curiosity and investigation into the perceptual possibilities of colour and the diverse media in which he works. For the past year, Osborne’s practice has cantered on challenging spatial dimensions and examining the relationship between organic design inherent to the handmade and the perfect symmetry that can be achieved through digital manipulation. In these works. Osborne realizes a painting on canvas, which he then transfers into Photoshop. Through this digital platform, Osborne alters the visual format to create psychedelic compositions that are at once dizzying and serene. With his newest body of work, Osborne embraces chance and unique incidents that emerge as he paints. Employing a range of media, including acrylic paint, resin, glue and collaged pieces of fabric, Osborne relinquishes the control that he maintains with his digital work to realize inventive compositions that evoke the fortuitousness and conceptual rigor of the early Dada. Approaching painting as an experience, Osborne creates works that are at once cemented in personal experience, yet evoke celestial landscapes that defy specific categorisation. Experimenting with fluidity, Osborne investigates how things develop when uninterrupted and discovers the ways in which he can insert himself into this process to influence the outcome. Finding a balance between allowing his paintings to form themselves and guiding their construction is the driving force behind Osborne’s creative impulse. Alex Osborne was born in 1989 in New York and currently lives and works between New York and Paris. In 2012 Osborne received his B.A. in Sociology from Occidental College in Los Angeles.
