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 with automatic drawing techniques; out of the raw transmissions of line work emerged new gestalt forms that would inform the artist's organic aesthetic. The success of those early experiments provoked an inquiry into the hidden nature of the images: from what aspect of the human system did they so readily emerge, and why?
What followed was an ongoing period of research into the underlying powers of art with material ranging from biology to mythology, primitivism to depth psychology and altered states to cultural theory. This research, in unison with the project's aesthetic module, 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.
