We’re delighted to have a brand new collection by artist Alexandra Bex at ART5 Gallery!
Alexandra completed her studies at the Berkshire & Chelsea Schools of Art, later joining the film industry and working as a Background Artist for animated films, working on projects such as The Snowman to ‘The Tales of Beatrix Potter’, amongst others. It was during this period that she developed her painting style, whilst working on TV programmes, films and adverts. Since leaving the film industry, Alexandra has been committed to her artwork, showing in galleries and art shows in the UK and abroad for over a decade.
The initial inspiration for her work comes from the powerful and evocative use of colour, shape and texture, seen in her atmospheric cityscapes. Her use of texture and a monochromatic colour palette infuse her semi-abstract landmark paintings with the energy of the city, with touches of shimmer and sparkle.
‘With this latest collection of paintings which are mainly monochrome, I did not want to produce a photo-realistic representation of the scene in front of me, but rather an impression of various landmarks, working on the canvas using acrylics, texture and collage. This enabled me to create an exciting balance of space, movement and depth.’
