This Tiny Island: Alexander Friedman (Recent Paintings)
5 February - 20 February
Albion (this tiny island) / Oil on canvas / 162 x 122mm
Alex’s paintings display a joy of the things we, as society, cast off, “the everyday things that folk’s leave behind”. These forms are both ancient and modern; Arrowheads, bricks, BBQs, ladders, chunks of broken road and much more, all merge to form traditional landscape scenery and characters. The artworks become panels and sequences, like a sad comic strip that aims to question our rare existence on this land. How did we get to this state? Where are we going? Journeying from our ancient history on this tiny island, from that to this.
