Trained as both an architect and as a sculptor, James Rodger Alexander utilizes form to articulate and delineate space. Both his large scale sculptural installations and small scale sculptural pieces focus primarily on one reoccurring issue: the resolution of the conflict between opposing forces. These opposing forces may be literal and physical or conceptual and philosophical. The recognition of dualities and the quest for a resolution is the consistent element in his work.
James Rodger Alexander is currently Professor of Ceramics at University of Alabama at Birmingham. He earned his MFA in Sculpture and Ceramics from Louisiana State University, and also holds both the Bachelor of Architecture and Masters of Architecture in Urban Design degrees from Cornell University.
