Alex makes assembly works and mixed media art. The creations are sometime a bit morbid. But these are simply his fantasies. The sculptures or assembly works are made of handmade items and objects which are gathered together. These objects were collected over the years, found at thrift shops, flea markets and provided by friends and family.

Often recurring themes in his work are death, freedom, captivity, and religion. The latter as being an atheist (or actually agnostic he must admit), his fascination and revulsion simultaneously.

Light Unites interface

In this work, he has taken the theme in the most literal sense of the word. The work is a light and thus literally gives light to a room.
