About the artist
Alexander grew up in Chichester in the shadow of the South Downs and had an early interest in making pictures as a boy, which developed into the desire to become an artist when he saw a Picasso sculpture in Antibes at the age of twelve.
Following his Foundation Course at West Sussex College of Design, Alexander went on to complete a degree in Fine Art at Cardiff Art College. He has spent periods of his life living and exhibiting in both Barcelona and Holland, and currently lives and has a studio in Hove in East Sussex.
Alexander’s work was largely figurative for a long period prior to moving into abstraction and his current work is still influenced by the figurative tradition, often with elements of classical composition. The genesis of an image is complex and gradually becomes refined during the working process, until only the essential elements of the composition remain and a visual balance is achieved.
“My influences are broadly ranged from twentieth century abstract-expressionist painters to the graphic language and use of hot colours on the punk LP covers that originally inspired me to go to Art College.
“My most recent work has drawn inspiration from aerial reconnaissance photographs taken by my father during the war. I have used these black and white images as a starting point taking shapes and combining them with shots of bright colour from my own post-modernist reference points. I see this as a way of recycling these haunting images for a contemporary audience.”
Alexander exhibits at the Brighton Art Fair and selected galleries nationwide throughout the year.
