Alex Roulette: Fabricated Realism

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on December 16, 2010 in Art
  • Using photographic source images, Brooklyn artist Alex Roulette creates realistic paintings of fabricated landscapes, depicting private moments in male adolescence.

    "The invented landscapes arise from archetypal citations of past and present cultural influences," he says. "Placing figures into these landscapes is an attempt to take advantage of the viewer's natural ability to extrapolate narratives. The disjointed nature of the source images, contrasting with the way they are realistically unified, take on a contingent sense of reality."
