artUS 32

Alex McLeod
by Otino Corsano

The Issue 32, 2012 of artUS Magazine featured
my interview with Alex McLeod.

McLeod's work is included 
in a new group exhibition
Angell Gallery

November 3rd – December 1st
Opening reception Saturday November 3rd 1–4 PM

ANGELL GALLERY is pleased to present SIMULATORS, an exhibition showcasing new work by eight artists who are at the forefront of contemporary digital art practices: Philippe Blanchard, David Clarkson, Alex Fischer, Brianna Lowe, Alex McLeod, Rafael Ochoa, Jon Rafman and Jillian Ross. 

Alex McLeod's work delights and confounds. They appear to be photographs of futuristic fantasy dioramas, yet are entirely constructed using a specialized 3D rendering program. Expertly exploiting the software's capacity to emulate surface textures, McLeod builds highly tactile virtual worlds replete with gleaming globular clouds, shiny porcelain towers and crystalline structures, sumptuous yet strangely deserted. McLeod is represented in public and private collections, and at age 28 has already had seven solo exhibitions, including this year's Curiosity at Mass MoCA. 

The following is an excerpt of the artUS article:
Making a big deal about the software, is like asking a painter what brand of paint they use.
It shouldn't matter,
you can produce my work any number of ways.
There are no secrets.

Alex McLeod - "Rare Lights"
