Alex Becerra

Press release

Alex Becerra – Waldeinsamkeit

Alex Becerra’s picture planes are often heavy with shiny, massy forms of oil paint occasionally revealing gessoed canvas and often depicting classical subject matter such as still lifes or nudes.

The practice of draftsmanship is integral to his process and in this body of work, the highlighting of graphic elements such as drawing and sketching in oil paintings is reflective of Becerra’s commitment to the essence of this classical medium.

His work happily complicates the history of European modernism while referencing Chicano aesthetics at the same time.
