David Alexander’s signature waterscapes and landscapes push reality to abstraction. He utilizes a bold palette and gestural, seemingly erratic paint application. The resulting paintings are evocative of place but most often driven by emotion and color. Surfaces of water and broader landscapes become abstract fields of color, distorted reflections and energetic shapes mingling. 

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 serving as 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.
