My name is John Alexander. I have been creating and sharing my works online for many years under the name 'SirJohn'. I find inspiration in the world around me, in human behavior... and the dark recesses of the mind. The world is filled with people painting landscapes and flowers... I am not one of them.
My approach to art is often quite simple. Sometimes I am experimenting with new techniques, trying to create something interesting and pleasing to the eye. Other times I will think about something all day at work... sometimes even for weeks before actually starting a project. Many of my images are simply digital representations of visual thought.
The dark side of life weighs heavily in my work. Many of my images you may be able to look at and relate to in some way... my work is inspired by things quite human. My images cover many different spectrums of human emotion and behavior. Fear, anger, despair, doubt, vulnerability... there are many themes to be found here.
This website is my way of sharing my vision. Maybe you can find inspiration in some of my images. Sometimes it is not the images themselves that create the deepest impact, rather the thoughts that spring from them upon viewing. If I can make you lean back in your chair in wonder ('whoa, how did he DO that??'), if I can make you breathe a sigh of relief ('wow, thank god I am not the only one to have felt THAT WAY'), if I can simply make you think about what you are seeing... I have not wasted my time, or yours.
Thank you for taking the time to visit. Any feedback that you may feel inclined to give is greatly appreciated. Enjoy your trip through my world!
