These paintings continue Alex's investigation into the emotive power of everyday scenes transformed into quiet images, inducing contemplative stillness. Sitting on the boundary between minimal abstraction and the figurative, Alex reduces his images to an essence, leaving behind tensions between architectural space and the numinous items of his surrounds.
