“I was young I was so young it hurt like a knife
because there was no alternative except to hide as long
not in self-pity but with dismay at my limited chance:
trying to connect.”—Friends Within the Darkness - Charles Bukowski
"If I had one word to describe the art of Alec Goss, that word would be eclectic. Each of his works contains a fascinating mix of styles, mediums, colours and meanings, and yet, they all combine to substantiate their titles. They seem to find their inspiration from Modernist collage and fragmentation, the rebellion, music, and art of the 60s, and the postmodern eclecticism of today. Alec’s titles including ‘What Is This Mad Obsession With Freedom’, ‘All War Is Deception’, and ‘Fame Kills’, transcend the postmodern era, as relevant today as they were in the decade of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll."
