Mt. Melvil is currently exhibiting “Do You Agree?”, officially the first solo show by contemporary artist Alex G. Born.
Showcasing since July 18th, the show explores concept and mood within a visual story that unfolds through Born's figurative, acrylic paintings on wood. Drawn from his personal experiences, viewers delve into each scene that communicates facets of memory that have been distorted through time.
“When looking at art, I find it important to consider three questions; what is the artist trying to say (concept/story/mood), how are they saying it (style/technique/medium), and whether or not I can relate to it. In making my work I am actively withholding the second question."
