Jason Shawn Alexander and Gene Guynn will be showing new paintings at Strychnin Gallery Berlin starting September 4th.
American painter Jason Shawn Alexander is a self-taught artist: never having attended formal art school, art language and isms" mean nothing to him. The things that matter in his work are honesty and emotion, and while it is his aim to make people think, it is first and foremost to make them feel. His works have been exhibited all over the USA, most recently also in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC, and in Europe. Bringing to mind painters such as Lucian Freud, his portraits often picture uncomfortably physical embodiments of his subjects' emotions. Gene Guynn, originally from Texas, defines his portraits through a symbolic scar that stands for each person's past experiences, memories and emotions."
