Alex Malcolmson ‘Connections’
18th July – 22nd August 2020
“Over the last 40 years or so I have had the good fortune to be able to collect paintings, sculpture and ceramics by artists whose work I admire. I have been even more fortunate in getting to know some of the artists, so for this exhibition, along with the Gallery, I have invited a few of those I have had connections with to join me in showing at Twenty Twenty in Ludlow.
The art and objects that I live with inevitably have an effect on what I make myself and this is reflected, consciously and unconsciously, in the many different methods and media I use in my own work.
I use bits of old boats and found objects, as well as more conventional painting and carving techniques. My work, like the work I have collected, lies somewhere between painting and sculpture, art and craft, representation and abstraction. There are certain themes that I return to frequently; usually connected with watery places and often somewhere in a northerly direction.”
