"The veneer of translucent resins and polished tiles serve to disguise more sinister aspects of my thematic intentions. Violence, narcissism and apathy are all hidden within the cold blue objects, representative of perfection and power" - Alexander Glass, 2020. 

Alexander Glass' practice involves creating pristine minimalist sculptures. All three of his sculptures included in To My Twenties, are connected in a unified imagery that sinks and slips between planes. 

Articulating simultaneous sensations of attraction and horror is a key intention of his practise and these works represent the development of these ideas within 2020.

Desire is physical; this is the notion that underpins the artist's sculptural and installation practise. Through gloss surfaces and cinematically aspirational imagery, Alexander aims to seduce audiences into the theatre of his oeuvre.
