ALEXANDER ROKOFF

Alexander Rokoff is perhaps the leading young Attitude painter. His paintings are wise, quirky, and often cocky. Drawing exclusively from the people, community, events, and environments of contemporary life, Rokoff nudges viewers around, pushes them into curious and sometimes uncomfortable corners.

At the same time, he challenges them to entertain foreign and awkward imagery. Appearing almost voyeuristic, his paintings make bare the emotion, restlessness, or contemplative states of the models. Each work is executed in Rokoff’s signature style, one that presents direct quotations from the great European masters and yet has a looseness of brushwork and an exploration of color and texture that is entirely Rokoff’s. His command of anatomy coupled with a complete understanding of how states of being—emotions and thoughts—manifest physically in the human form, make his images haunting and hypnotic.
