alex platt – is a self taught painter, born in rural New South Wales, Australia. Platt has been exhibiting for the past 10 years and is currently living and working in France.
Her work is often autobiographical, sometimes whimsical and always thought provoking. Working on stretched canvas, her works achieve a unique marriage between fine line detail and expressive textural backgrounds, where many layers of diluted acrylic paint create their own movement.
Details are subtly highlighted with fine black outlines, each calling forward the beauty of eyes and mouths, bottles and light bulbs, water drops or pigeons. It is an inherent understanding of the beauty in minutia that makes Alex Platt’s work both absolutely arresting and incredibly beautiful
