Consumed by Consumption brings together a body of work developed by Alex over the course of many years, underpinned by his relentless fascination with contemporary societal tensions.
Often recording snatches of conversation overheard on public transport or taking inspiration from scenes captured among other public areas, Alex turns his voyeuristic gaze upon issues such as the increasing improbability of home ownership in Sydney, the insidious nature of advertising and the notion of art as commodity (as well as the role of the artist within this).
The subsequent imagery reflects a satirical and humourous critique of our consumer driven economy and culture, inviting inward speculation around our own complicity within this 21st century epidemic.
