Alexander Vermillion states, "My hands work the bare metals to release the forms that are scratching to get out. Through cutting and twisting, wrapping and binding, soldering and hammering, I build skeletons, skins, wings and everything else to make a whole. It becomes an animal, an insect, and sometimes something unexpected. Metal is alive to me."

Alexander R. Vermillion is a 1996 graduate of Iowa City High School and received his Bachelor of Arts degree as an honors student in the Fine Arts from the University of California San Diego in 2000.
