DAVID ALEXANDER

David Alexander’s signature waterscapes and landscapes are done in a style that pushes reality to abstraction. He relies on a bold palette and gestural, seemingly wild paint application, creating paintings that are evocative of place but most often driven by emotion and color rather than depicting a recognizable landscape. The surface of water becomes an abstract field of colors, reflections and shapes mingling, allowing the eye to take in the attributes of the physical surface of his canvases.   

Alexander studied at the Vancouver Art School and Langara College, both in Vancouver, BC, and holds a BFA from Notre Dame University, Nelson, BC. He also received an MFA from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK. He has been a Visiting Artist and instructor across the globe, and participated in residencies including being a Guest Artist in Residence at the Morris Graves Foundation and the Grand Canyon’s Artist in Residence Program.  Alexander’s work is part of numerous museum and gallery collections including the Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver BC, Notre Dame University, Indiana, and Museum London, London ON. In addition, his work is in Embassies in Berlin, Beijing and Krakow. Corporate and private collections include works in major Canadian cities as well as in Dubai, Seoul, New York, Mumbai and Nice, among others.
