Malcolm Alexander — “Nobody Ever Asked Me How I Felt!”   3 comments

During this past decade, we got to know some fascinating a pleasurable people to be around. One such person was artist Malcolm Alexander. Malcolm was a very friendly introvert that wanted you to do most of the talking. If you take the time to read this post, you may want to click on some of my other posting on Malcolm. We are pleased to have a copy of his self-published memoir, which he completed before moving back to Santa Fe in 2013. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

Malcolm Alexander made a reputation as a sculptor by answering the question, “What do you think?” He spent years telling stories, and he was good at it, like creating an 18-foot monument dedicated to the 72,000 men and women who built the Alaskan Pipeline, or a nine-foot portrait of actor Jimmy Stewart. After being commissioned to create many monuments and sculptures of workers, sports and entertainment figures, Malcolm wanted to focus on answering the question, “What do you feel?”

The transition from the realistic (representational) to the contemporary, unique, never to be duplicated art, was Malcolm’s topic at the “2011 Tanuri Ridge Education & Recreation Opportunities,” series coördinated by Tom O’Rourke. His presentation also included a slide presentation on the two and a half-year process of building the Alaskan Pipeline monument and his early struggle with dyslexia.
