Video: Jason Shawn Alexander’s “{SIC}” at 101/exhibit

On October 13, Los Angeles' 101/exhibit Contemporary Art Gallery will premiere "{SIC}," a new body of work by painter Jason Shawn Alexander. An autobiographical series, the new works in the show attempt to unearth complex emotions, telling stories with the subjects' facial expressions and body language. The title of the show is an editorial term used to signify "written as intended." With this concept in mind, Jason Shawn Alexander sought to create works that can be read on an intuitive level. The result is textured, rich paintings that convey a sense of rawness without any aspirations to polished perfection. Take a look at some of the works and a teaser video after the jump.
