New Exhibition: Alex Basco, “Aluminism”
Our new exhibition,“Aluminism”, is the work of Welland artist, Alex Basco. Alex describes his very contemporary and popular artwork as follows.
“The foundation of my art is aluminium. I grind and carve designs right into the aluminium then I use my specialized process. The end result is a mesmerizing effect that is unparalleled to what can be achieved on canvas. Lighting brings out stunning movement, colours and texture. As you move and observe the art from various vantage points you will see it change before your very eyes.
My artwork is topped with a high-gloss finish. This allows the light to penetrate through the layers of colour and refract off the grinds in the aluminium to achieve a stunning holographic illusion.
Whether the subject matter is serene sunset landscapes, nebulas portraying the very depths of space, or even abstract pieces that test the imagination of its viewers, my Aluminism style never fails to captivate.”
