Alexander Costello (b.London 1976) is a sculptor, video and live artist. Ideas and work are generated through an interest in challenging and exposing the everyday absurdity of perceived normality; the simultaneous pursuit of the infinite and finite; the origin and location of idea; and the exploration of processes that are in themselves the truth in the work, often undermined by a resulting outcome. Misinterpretation and miscommunication of action and language, and an impulse to consistently re-consider form and composition, support and bring balance to endeavours.
Costello is a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and has a Masters in Fine Art from The Slade School of Art (2001) and a First Class degree, with Honours, in Fine Art from Middlesex University (1999). His work continues to be exhibited both nationally and internationally and he currently lives, works and teaches in London.
