Some images from upcoming exhibition - 'Chromascura' by Rodney J. Alexander
Read about the artist and see some of his beautiful watercolours that make up his exhibition which starts this Thursday, 28th July...
Rodney James Alexander was born in 1976 and grew up on yachts sailing the east coast of Australia with his family. From a very early age he was drawing and painting inspired by the world around him. His formative education was via correspondence schooling, drawing playing guitar and the experiences of a youth spent sailing the oceans.
In 1996, Rodney moved ashore to Newcastle, NSW and studied fine arts. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in 2000 and began working as a commissioned pastel artist. He followed up his fine arts studies with further tertiary studies in graphic design.
Being ruled by the right side of his brain, Rodney is also a working musician/composer writing and performing with his Celtic inspired singer/songwriter partner Hiedi Limbeer. In late 2009, they released their most commercial CD "Carry Me Away" which the ABC Radio National described as "a real find".
In early 2010, Rodney and Hiedi settled in the beautiful Southern Channel region of Tasmania which has become the inspiration for his watercolour flights of fancy and native wildlife collection "Chromascura".
I strive to create something that is either beautiful, thought provoking or both. I am happy making a living doing something I love without having too much impact on our fragile world.
