Alexander Reyna

"Exploiting the intersection between art and technology, his work includes realtime video installations, large format video projection, painting, drawing and corporate projects including creative direction for games, social networks and virtual worlds, broadcast animation, and motion graphics. Reyna's style includes hyper-designed and beautifully complex work which reconciles the distinction between analog and digital practices and attempts an act of visual seduction. His work process includes a search and retrieval phase often made in illicit collaboration with corporations and others who shape the culture given to us. His effort aims to subvert those authors original intentions by re-purposing visual imagery into a less direct form. The work is beautiful, profane, banal and sublime yet at the same time alludes to deeper layers of meaning."
