If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away---Henry David Thoreau

Alex Gross: Pop Surrealist

Alex Gross is a painter working in LA. He attended Art Center College of Design, the school I used to visit in 1968-69 and dreamed of attending. Gross was an honor student there and received two faculty grants.

Gross' paintings have a classic realist look, but with a juxtaposition of odd subjects with themes of globalization, technology, Victorian photography, and Christianity.
