Alex Pearce is a painter of cityscapes and other landscapes.
The constant pushing and pulling of mediums has been a key element with in his paintings. This has allowed his exploration of cityscapes and the manipulation of light to be constantly moving forward and changing. As the cityscape changes with every new building or as the sun or moon changes with every new day.
The subject of his paintings is the manipulation of light in a cityscape and its modern architecture. It is the small details which help to build up his paintings. Through the use of photography and drawing Alex has been able to capture some of the development in London.
The details that can be seen in his work come from observing the city and its architecture. This has allowed Alex to experience the key details people notice. Why certain people stop to discover an architectural feature that catches their attention. It is these details that become noticeable in the drawings or paintings of architecture.
Alex Pearce’s painting style has taken on an abstracted yet romantic theme. The colours in his paintings being very nostalgic. This is key to creating the notion of silence and subtlety when being viewed. Together with this calming nature it is the dominant forms of the buildings and features that help to give presence to his paintings.
