Alex is a practicing artist living in Melbourne, Australia. His work reflects on community life and urban scenes around him, scenes that have a daily impact on his life and on his painting. Through an unfolding process of inclusion and exclusion of figurative elements, he creates a personal and idiosyncratic comment on the impact of the surrounding environment on his own sense of being. Alex is interested in paint and the possibilities of its varied applications. His work alludes to the real and slips into abstract spaces. The translucent and textural qualities of paint, applications that slip between intricate spaces pertaining to the real and modes of abstract gestures, create a phenomenological mindscape of layered surfaces.
Alex is a coordinator of drawing in the program of communication design at RMIT University, Australia.
