X E L A S O M A is the umbrella moniker for the collective creative works of U.K. based Artist Alex Amos.
The project began in 2010 following experiments in combining consciousness alteration practices with automatic drawing techniques, supplying the first raw transmissions of linework that would underlay the artist's organic aesthetic. The success of these experiments provoked an inquiry into the hidden nature of the images - from what parts of the human system did they so readily emerge, and why?
What followed was an ongoing period of research into the underlying powers of creativity with material ranging from biology to mythology, primitivism to depth psychology and mystical states to propaganda. This research, in unison with the project's creative aspect, is charged towards elucidating the relationship between man and image, mind and flesh.
The artist's video channel offers a window into his creative life and also acts as a platform to discuss related topics.
