Alan Joseph Marx (b. 1968) is a Los Angeles based painter and photographer committed to exploring experimental portraiture, figurative work, dark environments, and landscapes. He has been shooting still images since his late teens, when he randomly found a camera in the drawer of a rented piece of furniture. His initial attraction to photography was the necessity for patience and delayed gratification between the moment the photographer clicks his camera and the moment the finished prints come to light. Alan finds inspiration in nature, traditional photographic techniques, raw materials, and infrared film. Previous exhibitions include Art Share LA, Richard Photo Lab, Eastside Switch (all Los Angeles, CA), and the Coachella Valley Art Center [Indio, CA). Alan lives in Los Angeles with his partner and collaborator Ryan Brewer, their dog Frances, and their two cats George and Andre.
