… Aleksandrov belongs to that rare type of artist who is absolutely self-sufficient. Artists like him are independent of any prevailing trends or tendencies; their main urge is to create their own mythology, if not cosmogony. The inner tension of Aleksandrov’s images gives them a unique spiritual meaning: soaring in space, real and metaphysical, somnambulistically self-absorbed, unprotected and fragile, they are ready for revelation. And this readiness is a sign of high Russian spiritual tradition…

… The fundamental elements of this artist’s world are life, death, love, faith, creative work. Themes such as beauty, perfection, spirituality and revelations play an integral part of his artistic conception. Aleksandrov’s works could be called, to my mind, mysteries, because of their representativity, hierarchy and ritualistic quality…

… The paintings of Aleksandrov are windows into a world of parables, all with spiritual meaning. As the plots of these allegories develop, we see the inevitable victory of good, with lessons that are always positive and life asserting….

… Aleksandrov’s paintings reflect his long spiritual quest. He recreates reality from his inner experiences to provide an escape from the material world to the mystical. Through Aleksandrov’s paintings, medieval and Renaissance forms and colors are evoked and create a timeless continuum. The dominant issue is the desire to transcend reality to reach a higher spiritual realm and the overall mood of his work is overpowering…

… Aleksandrov’s genius lies in his original manner of expression which emerges from his powerful imagination. Through his artistic creations he analyses the spectrum of human emotion which allows the viewer to enter into his personal and unique artistic universe…

… Aleksandrov is a colorist … color is used to build emotional statements. That is why his work radiates its golden glow, a glow of which many viewers have said, “It seems to come from behind the canvas”. He uses the warmer values in the spectrum, colors such as yellows, reds and golds, similar to those in the tradition of such artists as Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Gogh.

… Historically, Aleksandrov stands as a lone figure. His poetic imagery does not fall into a fixed static category. The flowing lyrical forms, warm golden color changes and imaginary space in which his heroes act and react, are unique in the historical and contemporary art…

… Aleksandrov depicts distant internal forces that do not succumb to temporal change, as do social or even cultural conventions. They have a timeless quality, as do the unconscious drives that we all share, independent of time and place. Aleksandrov’s themes are humanist ideas, and meant to be viewed, felt and experienced in that light…

… Aleksandrov’s spiritualism comes through in all of his paintings. The beings portrayed in his work all transcend to higher levels of spirituality, which is particularly apparent in their faces. Aleksandrov expresses his deep spirituality with perfect technical execution…

…like Botticelli whose influence was said to be Ovid, when accessing a muse for his mythic work, a trans-literal dialectical metamorphism occurs in the alchemy of Aleksandrov’s work to state a message…

…Aleksandrov’s paintings access the rhythmic heartbeat of the universe unfolding and are never finished in the artist’s eyes…

… He is a skillful artist inspired by the timeless quality of the work of the old masters, whom he had studied since he was a schoolboy in Lithuania. I consider myself very fortunate to represent Aleksandrov, who has demonstrated his artistic talents for over thirty years. It brings me great pleasure to offer such an extraordinary body of work to my collectors…
