Evening Light at Maldon by Matthew Alexander


LAST BUT BY NO MEANS LEAST IN 2017... MATTHEW ALEXANDER SOLO EXHIBITION

Published: 29 November 2017


Our last (but by no means least!) exhibition of 2017 is the highly anticipated new collection by acclaimed British painter Matthew Alexander - 'Following in the Footsteps of Impressionists'.

This solo exhibition opens today (29/11/17) at our London gallery, 3 Seymour Place, W1H 5AZ, and is on show until December 23rd, so come along and talke a look at the artist's latest body of work, reflecting his passion and appreciation of the great impressionist painters of the past.

What does it mean to paint in the Impressionist style today? What incentive lies in the act of repainting some of the most renowned scenes in Western visual history? The artist who does so risks a hefty comparison to the titans of the era, ever mindful of the mammoth shadow cast by names like Monet, Renoir, Degas or Pissarro. The work must also ring clear with intention and novelty, in order to be distanced from the pigeonhole of pastiche. Matthew Alexander's latest paintings both consider and emulate the Impressionists, deploying the style and famous locations of the period to communicate the artist's own relationship to the movement itself and the medium of paint.
