A3L3XZAND3R L. HARRIS   Born in 1983 in Berkeley, California. He grew up in Sonoma County wine country , Healdsburg , where he continues to make his home today. Born into a family of artists with his father and his father’s father as painters... He knew from an early age that he would represent a third generation, expressing himself through the mediums of oil paint and clay and occasionally glass.     A strong believer in observing nature, his painting and sculptures are created reflecting the act of observing life itself. His inspiration relies on the recollection of interactions and experiences of the natural beauty (Physical & Intellectual) that surrounds him. His work is directly derived from "the closest living relative of the natural world... One’s own memory". "An honest painter will paint what they know and what they are able to observe from that which surrounds them…From one’s honest recollection of their position in that time and place."   A3L3XZAND3R resides in Healdsburg, California, where he is surrounded by stunning vistas. The landscapes are familiar to him, and the natural beauty around him serves as constant inspiration.   A3L3XZAND3R’s work is widely collected and his work is included in numerous notable permanent classical and contemporary, private, public and corporate collections throughout the world. He is held in corporate collections and displayed publicly in such places as Hyatt Regency Hotel Group, Sutter Health Group, and Kawasaki to name a few. Some of the private collections hold historically important artists such as Homer, Rembrandt, Kandinsky, Repin, Fetchin, Zorn, Picasso, and Matisse to name a few, amongst many other note worthy artists.   He attended the Florence Academy of Art (Florence, Italy) for four years, splitting his participation in the academy between the Drawing/Painting Program and the Sculpture Program. He also sojourned to St. Petersburg, Russia where he attended The Repin Academy (also know as the Russian Academy of Art).   His academic training required a rigorous approach that includes careful study of the masters, as well as drawing, painting, and sculpting the human figure, with emphasis being placed upon 19th and 20th French atelier classical technique.   The range of his work can be classified from modern abstract to figurative realism. He works in the mediums of oil paint, pencil, charcoal and water color for his drawing and painting work; and works in wet clay for his bronze works.  


ATMOSPHERE  noun noun: atmosphere; plural noun: atmospheres
 the envelope of gases surrounding the earth or another planet. An atmosphere from Greek (atmos), meaning "vapour", and (sphaira), meaning “sphere"is a layer of gases surrounding a planet or other material body, that is held in place by the gravity of that body. An atmosphere is more likely to be retained if its gravity is high and the atmosphere's temperature is low. These works describe the overall aesthetic effect of space. Described in an intriguing and sometimes singular tonality, effect, or appeal. It is the soft texture and feeling of life that surrounds us that the artist is portraying. The air we breathe and the visual layer that surrounds us. These paintings depict views from the mind’s eye of what atmosphere is. Referring to the the pervading tone or mood of a place, situation, or idea. The ether between us and land or water and how that space integrates with all surrounding nature.
