Alexander Creswell: Fire & Light
September 13th - October 13th 2012
Alexander Creswell (b. 1957) is one of Britain’s most successful living artists. He has grown within the great tradition of watercolorists, and has doggedly pursued the time-honored values of integrity, craftsmanship, and painterly quality now often eschewed by the modern art establishment. Despite his reverence to the past, the result is entirely modern. Creswell’s technique is a rare combination of traditional values and a fresh and contemporary approach to the application—and in some case removal—of color. By layering his pigments and then literally scratching away down to the paper, Creswell daringly “sculpts” his compositions, thus enhancing the magical quality of the light and giving each view the feeling of a fleeting moment.
