INFORMACIÓN DEL ARTISTA
After a trip to the Galapagos Islands, Alex Sheriff has been inspired to create new worlds. They
are thick jungles, ocean bottoms, deep space, and other places unexplored where there still exists
the potential for new ways of being.
Using the familiar language of our own planet, Sheriff fills his worlds with peculiar animals,
plants, people, geology, and then blends these categories. These worlds where all matter is equal
can only be expressed through the language of abstraction. The inhabitants and their
surroundings, often as malleable as wet paint, cannot be exactly described by science and
therefore can only be understood through mythology.
Dreamy narratives are important in Sheriff’s work, landing somewhere between folklore and a
Kindergartner’s run-on sentence story.
