This is a chance to view and buy a range of artworks by artist Alex Westmore, who has recently appeared on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2022. Alex is the full-time Head of Art at the venue location and is excited to be exhibiting locally alongside two other artists, Emma Caplin and David Troughton, who also happen to be members of staff at King Edward VI School.
Alex's work is predominantly portrait based, favouring painting in oils. However, there will also be a number of mixed media and monoprint pieces on display. All originals are for sale alongside budget-friendly prints. Current paintings exude a sense of stillness and tight unnerving control, both in their execution and resultant aesthetics. She has long been interested in the symbolic capacity of objects and previously the use of certain materials as metaphors, the most prominent being thread; emblematic of tension, a motif that continues to permeate much of her work.
