"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
From "Art in the Twenty-First Century" Season 2 (2003)
Created by Charles Atlas, the opening for "Loss & Desire" begins with four-time Oscar-nominated actress Jane Alexander seated before a mirror in a glamorous dressing room, reflecting on the emotions that motivate some of the characters she has brought to life on stage and screen. Alexander notes that as an actress this emotional range is “familiar territory.” Alexander introduces the artists featured in the hour, commenting that they create works that are “both personal and universal.”
