Why art at all?
To commission a professionally produced piece of art is to encourage an environment that values creative expression. It enables fine artists to animate and construct dynamic relationships with physical space and to show their work to a large audience. Moreover, community areas that intergrate art initiate a sense of local pride while exposing anyone who is willing to look to thought provoking pieces. Unfortunately, too many artists struggle to earn a living wage from their work, forcing many to seek additional employmentin order to follow their passion and produce innovative artworks. This troubling trend both stifles the creative process of individual artists and discourages meaningful expressions on a larger scale. Alexander hopes to encourage a society in which artists have the mobiity to create pieces whose presence transforms the space and people around it
The commissioning process:
Due to the customized nature of Alexander's artwork, each commissioning process is unique. However, most commissions begin with an initial surveillance of the space in question and identification of how art can best fulfill the needs of the commissioner. The artist and commissioner then meet to discuss potential themes, materials, costs, and any permits or other preparations needed to move forward. If still interested, the commissioner makes a down-payment and works with Alexander to finalize the plan for the artwork. Finally, Alexander creates and installs the agreed upon artwork.
