Alexander Skats – creates and destroys. Again and again. His processes are long or short, whatever is needed for a relevant result. In the next step the process itself becomes a model for the creation of the next image – but in reverse. His purpose is not to get caught in previous knowledge. He forces himself to find a new vision in each painting. Alexander is interested in ceremonies – how they work as an important part of social structures. Their original meanings may be lost, but the tradition is still maintained. Everything becomes visible to us when the ceremony is being lifted out of context and depicted in bright colors in a fictional landscape.
