I draw ideas for my work Globally having spent several years working in India. I now spend time considering influences in different locations such as California and Sri Lanka. Questions such as how this imagery translates into a ‘pan global’ vocabulary become interesting. Creating a dialogue of mixing a western/eastern influence and the back and forth nature of the discussion happen on the surface of the canvas; moments, that may or may not have existed. Within my own contemporary painting style there are shapes and forms that lead to suggestions of 'things'. The ideas of semi-recognisable forms can suggest a narrative. Forms appear through drawings, thoughts, ideas and experiences. The paintings may suggest spaces I know, fabrics, places, an interesting space between buildings seen whilst walking in the street, a moment glimpsed whilst laying poolside, or even a collection of observed objects, tyres stacked on the road or a table laden with drinks and paraphernalia. It is that funny thing the brain does when the eye invites you to linger for a moment, focusing on a single point of reference that consciously or sub consciously I am satisfied with or pleased by. Many of these important elements are enhanced by a desire to explore the way light in these places enhances the compositions I allow myself to glimpse, bright harsh light that makes colours pop and resonate, a shimmering haze feeling. I want my paintings to have the same resonation. This of kind painting allows me the pleasure of observing the world and translating it.

Alec is an artist who works internationally, having spent several years working and living in Delhi, India. Now back in the UK, he is developing and processing the vibrant multi-sensory stimulus that he discovered whilst living in such a vivid place, as well considering other places he has spent lengths of time in throughout his life, such as California and Sri Lanka. This multi-sensory sense of movement within place translates into a ‘pan global’ vocabulary evident in his mixture of Western/Eastern influence in his painting style. His practice, oil on canvas, is traditional in medium, although the images that jump in and around the canvas are vibrant and playful, exploring the concept of fleeting moments. Within his abstracted painting style there are shapes and forms that lead to suggestions of 'things'. This idea of semi-recognisable forms can suggest a narrative throughout the painting, these forms or shapes can appear through drawings, thoughts, ideas and lived or imagined experiences. The paintings he creates may suggest spaces he knows, vibrant fabrics or places, or perhaps a moment glimpsed whilst laying poolside, or even a collection of observed objects, such as tyres stacked on the road or a table laden with drinks and paraphernalia. Many of these elements are enhanced by a desire to explore the way light in space, either imagined or real, enhances the compositions he allows himself to glimpse. This could be the bright harsh light that makes colours pop or a shimmering hazy light, recognisable from time spent in brighter sunnier parts of the world, California, India, Sri Lanka and Cyprus, The way it soaks its surroundings and makes the paintings vibrate, creating a resonation with this movement and moment, this creates an observation of the world through an imagined place, a playful space that translates into his own vocabulary on canvas
