Alexandra Matthews

  • Artist’s Statement

    Alexandra Matthews’ paintings juxtapose urban landscape within boundaries both limited and expanded by light. Each work is its own entity but comprise multiple constituent compositions with light, natural and artificial, the defining and amalgamating theme.
    Having moved into her Red Hill ‘Renovator’s Delight’ 37 years ago, Alexandra deciphers the language of early Queensland architecture. Painted in a hybrid of illustrative and realism, the detail is achieved through revisiting a view multiple times on neighbourhood walks.
