Alexander Kori Girard

Full of colorful markings and organic forms, Alexander Kori Girard canvases resemble tableaux vivants—a genre of scene painting that features still figures. The artist’s work frequently responds to the devastating impact humans have on our planet, reminding viewers to shake their dependence on electronic devices and go outside and observe the world. Girard’s process explores how psilocybin, ayahuasca and other forms of plant medicine can inform creativity over time.
