This Studio Sale presents 25 works of art direct from the studio of the award-winning Fine Art Sculpture graduate, Alexander Glass. 

Vital to an artist's practice is the ability to review the artwork in their studio and decide when to give a new audience the opportunity to engage with it. This solo show provides a moment to see the diversity and strength of Alexander's creativity, and an opportunity for collectors to buy his work fresh from his studio doors. 

A portion of the sale proceeds from this sale will be donated to Alzheimer's Society.

Alexander Glass
Alexander Glass's practice involves creating pristine minimalist sculptures which articulate simultaneous sensations of attraction and horror. ‘Desire is physical’ this is the notion that underpins the artist's sculptural and installation practice. Through gloss surfaces and cinematically aspirational imagery, Alexander aims to seduce audiences into the theatre of his oeuvre.

“Often functioning as sets without performers, my works explore the complex relationship between masculinity and desire. Locker-rooms, swimming pools and nightclubs are exploited for their familiarity but also for their association with the sexualisation of the male body. Through my academic research I investigate the history of the masculine ideal; from the idolatry of the ancient greek to the modern obsession with the superhero and the impact the age of social media has had on the self-image. This research manifests in my installations through the presentation of the ubiquitous physical body that only appears disembodied or on the surface of a screen. Desire for the body and the fabricated image of masculinity is left for the viewer to contemplate within artificial environments of ambition. My practise offers a critical and melancholy lens on the vulnerability of the potent male image and the world of aspiration.

My works on paper and other 2-D pieces run in parallel to my sculptural practice. Often informing and complimenting the world in which I seek to present. The connection between these elements can often be found through the intended ambience of sense of anticipation and longing that permeates the objects and the scenes depicted.” - Alexander Glass, 2020
