Alex’s work explores reoccurring themes of memory, the ephemeral, loss and transience both through the subject matter and the materials he incorporates.
His work strives to create pieces that encourages the viewer to pause and look closer, to draw in and reveal the overlooked and the unseen.
Alex has been fortunate enough to travel to many places around the world including Hong Kong, India, Japan and China, which has strongly influenced his art work. His style and way of working is part documentary and also somewhat abstract. This is where he embraces the ephemeral and invokes memory as a tool to convey singular moments. Repetition also feeds into his work often subconsciously and revisiting of places as a physical act or through the act of looking again at old images also plays an important role.
