About The Artwork

This painting was created using light fast acrylic ink and traditional gesso ground on birch. It was inspired by a process of walking and running in the Hertfordshire countryside during the winter period. The morning light in January can be fiercely red. The rest of the world can feel bleached out so the intensity of colour is accentuated. I hope that viewers will be feel energised by the red, emboldened. I work with traditional gesso ground because it is an incredibly sensitive and responsive surface. I use sandpaper, wood carving tools and wire wool to push the ink into the gesso surface. Even the finest of marks show up.

Shipping & Returns

Delivery Time:Typically 5-7 business days for domestic shipments, 10-14 business days for international shipments.

I am inspired by light, land, sky, and weather. The paintings are amalgamations of journeys taken on foot by running and walking. They describe and communicate physical, emotional and visual experiences of landscape. I typically emphasise the sky and remove signs of human habitation. By doing this I hope to offer you space to breathe and be, to be immersed or uplifted, to connect with your own memories of landscape. The paintings are made using a traditional gesso ground on birch or poplar. I prepare the gesso surface over a number of days. When I am ready to make a painting, I create texture by painting with the gesso and carving into the surface with wire wool, sandpaper and wood carving tools. Next I work with high quality light fast acrylic inks and push the pigment into the surfaces I have created. Alex has exhibited widely in the UK, working regularly with The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art and with Byard Art. She has work in private collections in France, Germany, Norway, the USA, Japan and the UK.
