Have your dreams ever been influenced by a movie you were watching, or a book you were reading before you went to bed? Maybe you were watching Mad Men or Leave It To Beaver and flipped to the Sci-fi channel until your eyes became so heavy you never realized you dozed off… until you awoke with the most vivid dreams still intact in your memory. Perhaps you unintentionally combined the two stories creating something like a wild west alien invasion or a trip to the moon with June and Ward Cleaver. This example might be a little off the wall to some but that isn’t the case with San Franciscan artist Alec Huxley.
Alec Huxley takes us on a journey into another time period, into a surreal world that puts us in some sort of a dream-state and evokes a wonderment and fascination that makes the imagination run wild. He combines desert landscapes, and SF cityscapes with his take on film noir and sci-fi genres. Often his work tells a story but not necessarily will his story be plausible, or actually make any sense at all. Nonetheless, his creativity is certainly admirable and worth checking out at his next upcoming exhibition, which is to be announced.
Alec is a photographer as well as a self taught painter. You can view more of his works on his website or purchase prints on Society6. He is the founder of Adult Flavored Pudding. Bizarre, we know…but check out his hilarious blog filled with updates and videos about the goings on in the unique world of Alec Huxley.
