Dewars, Alex

I am a Scottish Figure Painter. I work in Oil and create work that borrows heavily from the back catalogue of Art History and re-appropriates elements to illustrate the modern human condition. I do this through the use of composition and how the figure is presented. Revealing thought provoking insights into human behaviours and relationships, body politics and what we reveal about ourselves subconsciously. The result often depicts romantic and nihilistic conclusions in a single suspended moment.
