Alex McIntyre

Alex McIntyre is known for creating immersive works that offer viewers space to breathe. She is an abstract expressionist painter inspired by light, land, sky, and weather. Her landscape paintings, which communicate physical, emotional and visual experiences of landscapes, are born from personal memories of outdoor expeditions. These peaceful scenes are not depictions of specific locations, though; they emerge from accumulated and translated experiences.

Alex McIntyre‘s Early Career

Working as a professional artist since 2007, Alex has work in private and commercial collections internationally. She completed a fellowship at Digswell Arts (2016) and has held residencies with Middlesex University (where she completed a Masters in Fine Art in 2007), Brent Museum and Archives and Watford Museum.

Practice and Inspiration

Alex typically uses a traditional gesso ground on birch or poplar. She prepares the gesso surface over several days. Alex then creates earthy textural tensions by painting with the gesso and carving onto the surface with wire wool, sandpaper and wood carving tools. Finally, ink is pushed into and lifted from the surface to reveal multilayered marks. This multimedia process consolidates the memory of movement, her visual and physical discoveries captured like footprints on the canvas. The resulting works are a joyful exploration of migration, memory and nature.

Exhibitions and Art Fairs

In 2020, Alex was invited and selected to be exhibited in Beyond Other Horizons at Iasi Palace of Culture, Romania, a British Council, Romanian Cultural Institute and UNAGE show. She exhibits widely: self-representing at 14 editions of The Other Art Fair in London and New York, and represented at The Affordable Art Fair and Fresh Art Fair. In addition to working with Rise Art, she has shown in the following galleries: Byard Art, Kendall's Fine Art, Bils and Rye Gallery, The Biscuit Factory, Artichoke Gallery, Mylo Fine Art, the Stone Space, Irving Contemporary, Art5Gallery and Quercus Gallery, Saatchi Online and Wychwood Fine Art.
