The artist terms a lyrical line in his choreographed chaos pushing art from disparate spatial temporal mapping schemes into choreographed chaos.
Artist Alex Nodopaka addresses his practices with the current climate about painting and sculpture in the world during a time in which contemporary art receives renewed attention on the part of the market, the museum and the media. The artist terms a lyrical line in his choreographed chaos pushing art from disparate spatial temporal mapping schemes into choreographed chaos of luminously hued diagrammatic-graphic abstractions taking a weightless cosmology in which intricate compositions bathe in a surrealistic neon philosophy moving between the bottle, the canvas and his mind.
Alex Nodopaka, notorious for his choreographed chaos, mechanistic yet lyrical lines, extreme and intricate compositions, and acute abstractions, has pushed art to its outermost limits. Fluidly moving between the realms of the digital, sculptural, graphic, painterly and literary, the artist develops his art and the critical transformation of his larger artistic projects overlapping the historical pastiche of quasi-abstract art from Courbet to Klimt. He symbolically overlaps the light of contemporary muddied art with his acute hybrid style of suturing a weightless cosmology fusing ancient writings with the critical transformation of disparate spatial temporal mapping schemes into organic formal dramatic artistic cosmology.
Alex Nodopaka’s hybrid style addresses those times when he abandoned the academic sculpture and transitioned into his dense and unruly schema of labored, luminously hued diagrammatic-graphic abstractions. He drastically extends the parameters of his medium without abandoning the position of painting or sculpture. His brand of quasi-abstract art stems from the suturing of disparate spatial temporal mapping schemes, fusing ancient writing, modern masters, past and futurist fantasies. Alex Nodopaka terms it a weightless cosmology in a formal language representing the cultural flux that encounters the entanglement and the impossibility of its legibility, encapsulated in its organic formal drama. The artist articulates his radical artistic schemes through the symbolic overlap and obsessive geometries in an acute hybrid style of expressionistic figuration meeting his acerbic satiric surreal-elitism and blends it into a new strain of logic. From David to Courbet to Klimt, his absurdist quotations, cutting critiques and pastiches of styles and subject matter absorb the historical and the popular.
Alex Nodopaka’s stylish acute abstraction has mechanistic yet lyrical cutting lines and sharp delineations. His brand of appropriationistic glazed logic is perhaps dangerous but it is as addictive as coconut husks. His hybrid style, known to drive and crucify, is still too avant-garde to take the market and his pastiches of absurd quotations suddenly disappear, as the market is still full of styles and past fantasies! Fluidly moving between the realms of rubbery thoughts, this artist articulates his medium without abandoning the world. Moving between the realms of the digital, drastically measuring the distance between his kidneys with a five-dollar bill and obsessive geometries Alex Nodopaka is the artist to watch out for.
He stretches to the extreme his literati and articulates his medium without abandoning the fluid moving between the ages of styles and markets. He calls it a time in which contemporary crisis and acute hybridist style eats the poodle eating noodles. The artist addresses his radical artistic schemes calling on the modern masters with their antiquated plumbing and symbolic overlap to drastically extend the future of art. His brand of appropriations logic sings if you like green eggs and style with a new strain of museum expressionistic figuration meeting with acerbic satiric surreal-elitism art-speak and spatial temporal mapping schemes through cerebral disentanglement.
