Alexander Scott Rioh

Philadelphia, PA

As an artist, I like to welcome my audience before I slap them in the face.

Figuratively. Maybe literally.

I play with the fine line between tragedy and comedy, teasing emotions with intense changes from the disturbing to the laughable, in order to bring out the humor and absurdity of even the most terrifying and vulnerable situations.

I ask cerebral brain-paining questions that explore opposing perspectives on truth and reality. I examine and question your judgement, your morality, and your identity to confront your numbness and disconnection.

I confuse, destroy, create, and redefine paradigms to make peace with the universe and the unknown.

And when I'm not doing all of that dramatic stuff or selling tickets, I spend most of my time having deep conversations, playing board games with awesome people, and cuddling with my cat.
