David Alexander: A fifty year boots & brain journey in the land

David Alexander: A fifty year boots & brain journey in the land
Opening reception: Nov 3
"I have never subscribed to a repeated echo or a fundamental assumption that painting is over, forgotten or a relic of the past. Contemporary landscape is flourishing in new ways throughout the world. The idea of the painted wilderness or less trodden place is not a nostalgic notion. Thoreau's tiny ascetic cabin depicted in a bucolic setting of Eden or AY Jackson’s sleigh in the snow is nostalgic and overly romantic. Instead, the physical and psychological explorations of land and culture move us forward to create a viable contemporary painting. This construct, with a viewer to be a participant within an event of a landscape painting is only a single issue and is one of many tactical goals in the current genre of contemporary landscape painting." – David Alexander, 2018
