Alex Kopps & Alex Knost - 'Peripheral'

~ ~

Nine Lives is very happy to announce American Artists Alex Kopps and Alex Knost will be showing in the space from March 31st. “Peripheral” shows a collection of work that focused on in between moments and accidents. Alex Kopps will be showing abstract analog video art made primarily from reflections, optical tricks and glitches found in consumer digital cameras. Alex Knost will will show large optical prints of 35mm snap shot photography. There will also be a handful of limited prints and drawings on show.

Alex Kopps attended The California College of Arts in San Francisco, where
he still lives and works. His visual art consists of paintings with gouache on wood and paper with subject matter that is largely nonobjective but aesthetically has strong ties to the natural world. Having also worked on several film and photographic projects in recent years, Alex’s gallery shows are now often filled with diverse range of medium. Alex is part of US label RVCA’s Artist Network Program including artists like Aaron Rose, Ed Templeton, DMOTE and Andrew Pommier.

Alex Knost is best put in the all-rounder category, although making his name through surfing, hes also a talented artist and musician. Starting his career with painting and drawings, he has now also focused more of his work on film and photography including a recent project, the alternative surf flick ‘Beach Blanket Burnout’.

This show is proudly supported by RVCA and The Artist Network Program.

Opening Thursday March 31st from 6pm. RSVP here
