ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Occupying the limitless space between abstraction and representation, I hand-weld and shape sculptures with the laborious, traditional technique of metal fabrication. I draw inspiration from varied sources, including ancient Greek cultures and modern design aesthetics. All of my works have their own story. They are abstractions of things I see in nature, almost thought forms. I see movement and try to hold it in sculpture. I’ve always been intrigued by the fundamental nature of metal's longevity, strength, and inherent elegance. I’m creating beauty for people to enjoy, and that’s something we all need in our lives today.

BIOGRAPHY

Born in New York in 1976, Alexander’s interest in art was inevitably linked in his DNA. His first real memory of creating was when he was six years old, experimenting with tools to build abstract structures of wood in his father’s garage. By the age of 15, he was studying marble sculpting in Greece, off the Island of Crete. After graduating with honors and a B.A. in Sculpture from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, he embarked on an intensive seven-year apprenticeship with Sculptor Kevin Barrett to carefully hone his welding and fabrication skills for large form metal sculpture.

"Alexander Krivosheiw is an artist of vision and passion. His ideas are of a mature artist, and the craftsmanship is extraordinary; in both casting and fabrication. I feel as though his career is unfolding on a global level and he is truly an artist to watch."
–Hans Van de Bovenkamp
