About Toper Alexander
Christopher (Topher) Alexander is a printmaker, art instructor, and gallery director currently based in Wilmington, North Carolina. He has a passion for travel and translating the resourcefulness skills he has acquired while abroad into exciting new artwork. Topher has a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. He is fascinated by our society’s intimate connections to technology and loves exploring the ways these outlets mix into our analog world. After focusing primarily on printmaking over the past few years, painting became an outlet for a more ethereal side to his artwork. His series “On the River” has been an ongoing project for the past five years. Topher continuously painted over the same canvases, and the images originally formed from site specific locations along the Cape Fear River evolved into atmospheric studies of light, color and layers of paint.
