Alex Perry-Adlam is an Artist and Photographer based in London. Over the last 10 years he has exhibited in a number of group shows and also six solo exhibitions. For the last three years his presence on the London art scene has been quiet while he focused on art education and developing projects for students. Recently he has taken a break from the classroom and is now back in the studio working on a new series of works.
The idea of memory and how we perceive the world around us is a key theme throughout these new works. Using digital photography and blending in hand drawn and painted images in a seamless fashion though layering helps create a style that keeps the hand of the artist central to the work. Using the photograph and computer as a tool rather than become reliant on the final image from the camera, these work transcend being just photographs. Art historical references are prevalent throughout the work, from renaissance pietas to C18th still life, French protest posters from the 1960’s to the portraits of Gerhard Richter.
