Available Works - March 2017
Alex’s art is inspired by walking and running which enables the close, embodied observation of changes of light, land and sky connected with breath and movement. Whilst making in the studio she tries to re-capture an impression of a particular journey. The creative process then parallels the original journey resulting in a series of visual discoveries led by interactions with materials. The completed works are a conversation between the pictorial surface, materials and the memory of movement and places. Recurring themes include explorations of space, movement and stillness, noise and silence.
She is co-director and co-founder of HertsCreation C.i.C working with the arts as a tool for learning. As an independent practitioner, she is currently engaged by A New Direction, delivering Artsmark inspiration days with Nimblefish and as an Arts Award Advisor for The Funky Pie Company working with young people from SEN and EBD schools.
