Ruchell Alexander

Alexander and his family were among the dozen or so original members of the Magic Tortoise Commune which was established in 1973 on Lama Mountain, between San Cristobal and Questa.It was his good fortune, artistically speaking, that another of the original members of Magic Tortoise was an erstwhile New Yorker named Bill Gersh who in 10 years would emerge as a renowned Southwest painter and sculptor, and became a mentor to “Ru.”Alexander’s works today are large, multi-figured canvasses with dramatic, autobiographical subjects including indications of the centrality of Bill Gersh—both personally and artistically in his formation as a man and artist.
