ARTIST INFO

(b. 1967, London, UK) Alex Jorgensen studied at Bath Academy of Art and Brighton Polytechnic, where he received the Annabel Birtles Award. His interest lies in quiet exploration of form, composition and construction of works that give weight to small things. 
 
He had a workshop near Bath in the ‘90s, where he made small oil paintings and curated several exhibitions of work by important British potters, before a move to London and starting a family with his late wife Amanda (nee Lewis). Recent years have seen a return to oil paint and a move to Buckinghamshire. 
 
“I am something of a contemplative and see my work closer, perhaps, to prayer or song than art. A distillation of things - using a few simple materials. It is slow work. Circular and constructive in nature. A lifelong interest”.
