10th March - 2nd April 2016. Private view Wednesday 9th March.
Much like the agricultural landscapes he depicts, Matthew Alexander has furrowed paint across surface to such extent in his career that one must consider him a relevant extension of the lineage of great English landscape artists.
His work draws parallels with Constable and Edward Seago alike. The nature of his compositions are as such that one recalls these artists and their perspectives and it is with a sense of nostalgia that we reconsider the geographical landscapes in Alexander's paintings.
Alexander provides us with a modern insight to our glorious land, bereft of urban instalments and rich with rural heritage. His paintings offer an alternative to intensified living and recall the civilisations of old that we owe to our attractive coastal and rural horizons.
Interest in this exhibiton has already been so high, InsideKENT magazine (April issue) and Essential Suffolk magazine have both featured interviews with the artist.
Thompson's Gallery are very proud to present the latest solo exhibition of Matthew Alexander's paintings and we hope are able to join us at the private view to meet the artist and celebrate his latest successes.
