A graduate of the University of Denver, focusing on printmaking, painting, and mixed media/sculpture. Alex will blend religious tradition and contemporary art by reimagining the stained glass windows found in Catholic churches. By recreating the familiar spiritual stories, a new narrative that celebrates the modern queer culture will be told through the installations. To accompany the plexiglass panels, Alex will create an altar using prints, paintings, and candles to depict the modern interpretation of marginalized communities.
“Being able to push myself professionally has been my biggest challenge since completing my degree and I knew that the Create Award residency would allow me to thrive in a close cohort while also connecting with the artists creating around me.”
