Alexander Smith Artist Bio:
Alexander Smith is an artist with passion for craft and technique in which the process of learning never stops. After finishing two renowned academic studies he continued his quest for knowledge and started to focus on the older techniques used by the Dutch master painters. This concluded in mastering the glazing technique in such a way that he managed to create a whole new approach in the process of painting. Critics have found his work as being a masterful inclusion of realism. it is due to this technique where he is able to use more than 40 transparent layers to create a work that is both detailed, warm in color and depth. Many works went for sale and where purchased by collectors from around the globe. Beginning artist get to him to become familiar with this specific glazing technique. Eventually, since a few years, Alexander became looser in his approach. His desire to paint directly, be more present in the moment of creation made him decide to study the works of the masters of “the Hague School” and started to use ‘plein air’ again. Alexander is an artist who is open for any expression. He is a painter! The process of painting is the essence. The subjects became of lesser importance. in the end it is the intention that one will not be let by the inner shadow of doubt but learns to see that every moment in painting is direct expression of one’s self which has no boundaries. Besides his work as a painter he gives classes and workshops in drawing and painting. Here he tries to find the best potentials and possibilities from the students and have them unlocked, improved and make them workable. He does this my motivating, challenging and put them on exercises which will enhance their ability to observe and express.
