Alex Paulus Art Exhibit at Vol State

Submitted on January 07, 2013 at 11:02 AM

Memphis artist Alex Paulus brings his collage art work to Volunteer State Community College this winter in an exhibition that runs from January 8 to February 9.

"This group of works is an exploration of the human impact on the universe, as well as what humans think they know about the space they occupy," said Paulus. "The pieces range from ancient aliens to planetary debris and are executed with minimal imagery and color. The minimalism of the pieces represents the vastness of space that is all around us. This space can make you feel extremely insignificant, but it also demands to be investigated. The pieces are ultimately about exploring the unknown and passing on information to the next generation of living beings."

Paulus has a BFA from Southeast Missouri State University and a MFA from Memphis College of Arts. He works in painting, drawing, collage, photography and video.
