Peter Alexander

Kantor Gallery is pleased to present works by Peter Alexander from the Kantor Collection.

Peter Alexander (b.1939, Los Angeles, CA. d. 2020, Santa Monica, CA) has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide since the mid-1960s. His work is an active exploration of resins and color, transparency, and translucence. Alexander’s vision is one of creating a generative object – an entity that appears to emit its own light and energy. Peter Alexander is the recipient of multiple honors and awards including a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in 1980 and the California Art Award in 2014. In 1999, the Orange County Museum of Art (Newport Beach, CA) mounted a retrospective exhibition In this Light inclusive of painting and sculpture. His work resides in the permanent collections of numerous institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY.
