George Alexander: "Cedar Dreams"

George Alexander (Muskogee) will be featured in our first gallery show of the Scottsdale season.  George will be in the gallery during Scottsdale Art Walk from 7 to 9 pm this evening.  George Alexander has quickly been making a name for himself with his often surrealist paintings.  Thoughtful and creatively painted, George is part of the catalyst for the new generation of Native Artists.

George Alexander "Cedar Dreams"
George Alexander "Cedar Dreams" was featured in the recent issue of "Western Art Collector" Magazine.
George says of his painting, "Through my work, I express my connection to the world around me. As I continue to search for purpose, painting gives me a reason to look beyond the surface.  Each time I create a piece, I see a little bit of myself that I have not seen before.  As  I continue painting, it is a self-reflected dialogue on how I am feeling or where I am going."
George Alexander is a Muscogee artist, hailing from Oklahoma, who has always felt inspired by his Native heritage. “It’s important to juxtapose iconic native imagery with my own experience and use symbolism that speaks to my generation.” He seeks to push the boundaries of what is considered Contemporary Native Art. “I want to force the viewer to challenge their preconceived notions of ‘Indian.’” He graduated in 2016 from the Institute of American Indian Art. He is currently studying in Florence, Italy.
New Paintings by George Alexander as part of the "Cedar Dreams" Series.
Why "Cedar Dreams"? George was gifted a bag of cedar and "a new perspective sort of hit. I just couldn't get it out of my mind.  I see the cedar as a way to reinforce positivity in my life. I want these paintings to be a  reminder that you can always have a positive attitude no matter what circumstances".

"Forward-thinking gallerists, museum curators, and clay artists themselves are fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of Native clay arts. At the forefront is Charles S. King. Owner of King Galleries in Santa Fe and Scottsdale, Arizona.  He is considered by many to be the dean of contemporary Southwestern Native clay arts."
