    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

"Costume design uses the language of fashion to create characters, and to place them with great precision and delicacy into the visual and emotional landscape, and the social context, of a specific time and place. Clothes express infinite shadings of personality, from the broadest strokes to the subtlest suggestion; they tell a story. A costume designer is a psychologist, a detective, a diplomat, a social historian, but above all an artist and a collaborator; an artist whose medium is fabric, movement, form, color, texture, light and shadow; and whose work, in concert with actors, directors, cinematographers and production designers, brings characters dramatically and cinematically to life in a tangible, recognizable celluloid world."


Soon after graduating from Fashion Design in 1987, David was recommended for a job as assistant costume designer on the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation. His unique and thoughtful approach to clothing has served him well a busy costume designer for such feature films as Hoffa, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Legends of the Fall, Titanic, Wild Wild West, and Minority Report.
