SANDRO DE ALEXANDRIS (Turin 1939) Sandro De Alexandris was born in Turin where he studied at the Accademia Albertina, with numerous stays abroad. From the early 60s he turned his attention to radical pictorial abstraction and the mental dimension of the image. In 1964 he created the folded papers, in search for a graduated modulation of two-dimensional spaces. Between 1966 and 1969 he designed and realized the “TS” work cycle, which adopted mixed techniques. Since 1982 he has created papers and canvases with scans, contrasts, chromatic consonances, transparencies. The work cycle on appearance and disappearance of light and colour dates back to the early 90s. His work has been exhibited and disseminated in numerous exhibitions in galleries and museums in Italian and European cities: Turin, Milan, Rome, Paris, Zurich, Cologne, Munich, Frankfurt, Genoa, Bologna, Trieste, Graz, Basel, Bern, Lausanne , London, Philadelphia, Mainz, Koblenz, Hannover and others.
