HASAAN ALEXANDER-FORTE

Los Angeles

Hasaan Alexander-Forte's process is reflective of his measured study and consideration before taking sudden action to generate unique, gestural marks. Alexander-Forte utilizes an adaptive star grip tool and is positioned close to the table, holding his head just inches above his hand. As indicated, there are times when his movements are slow and seemingly meandering in direction and others when his motion is swift, solid, and deliberate. The effect of this process often produces a sensation of bold, broad, and muscular marks which are juxtaposed between delicate moments of calm. His process is evidenced on his work surface; the completed piece is a record of the dance between spontaneity and control.

Hasaan Alexander-Forte has been making art since 2003.
