Alexander’s 1966 sculpture “Cloud Box” perfectly summarizes his love for his city, Los Angeles, in a cast resin polyester cube, pigmented with white. In this sculpture, he combines his endearment for art and environment by embalming the California sun and blue skies in a box. In 1970s, Alexander abandoned sculpture and focused mainly on painting and drawing. In the 1980s, he incorporated mixed media including mosquito nets, velvet and vellum into his art. His famous “LAX” series from 1990s portray Los Angeles at nighttime with its glowing lights.
His return to sculpture came in 2009 after he has discovered the versatility of polyurethane and newer advances in polyester resin that prevented yellowing and brittleness. His oeuvre is exhibited in prestigious galleries and museums all over the globe, including MoMA in New York and Peter Blake Gallery in Laguna Beach.
