Alex McIntyre makes abstract landscapes using ink and gesso on marine ply. Her work is inspired by walking and running which enables the close, embodied observation of changes of light, land and sky connected with breath and movement. Whilst making in the studio she tries to re-capture an impression of a particular journey. The creative process then parallels the original journey resulting in a series of visual discoveries led by interactions with materials. The completed works are a conversation between the pictorial surface, materials and the memory of movement and places. Recurring themes include explorations of space, light, movement and stillness, land and sky. For the viewer, the works often provide space to breathe.
In 2016, Alex McIntyre completed a five-year artist fellowship at Digswell Arts () and set up a new studio space with Blackberry Forge Ltd. She has work in private and public collections in France, Norway and the UK. Previous exhibitions include the tenth, eleventh and twelfth editions of The Other Art Fair (London), ongoing relationships with Bils and Rye Gallery, the DSE Group and Quercus Gallery and artist-led exhibitions at independent sites such as The Stone Space gallery, Leytonstone. She has held AIR positions with Middlesex University 2008-2010 (with whom she also completed a Masters in Fine art 2007), Brent Museum and Archives (2010-11), Wizard Presents Production Company (2012) English National Ballet (2013), and Watford Museum 2014. Alex is a trainee creative specialist with Be Smart About Art, and also works as an independent practitioner, community artist and coach using the arts as a tool for learning and social change.
