Los Angeles based artist (previously featured here) Alex Gardner’s faceless, matte black bodies are draped with cotton and positioned in scenes of wordless action displaying every day – if slightly surreal – occurrences, allowing us to place ourselves into the work.  With this in mind Gardner’s paintings take on our very own storylines, reflecting our innermost issues and creating a mental connection rarely experienced in painting.
