Alex Kerr

Alex Kerr’s work depicts blithe scenes turned uncomfortable, distorted fun houses that examine authentic selfhood and queer identity. The artist builds dizzying, technicolor worlds using repetition and disquieting color and pattern—as well a variety of media, including oil, acrylic sheets, ceramic and wood. Kerr’s compositions employ the iconography of a stylized version of razzle-dazzle stage productions to pose important questions about freedom and the farce of daily performance, including: is there truth at the bottom of the lie?
