Alex Ross – Artist Statement
Alex Ross is a painter who prefers to draw. She was born in Australia, has spent half of her life in Canada, but feels most at home in South Africa. All of the places that Alex has lived have been visually stunning, and this has informed her transition from black and white lines on paper to bold colour blocking acrylic landscapes. She is influenced by the arid climate and angular mountains of the Okanagan Valley. She is happiest when she is creating intricate line drawing portraits. Her work is created more out of compulsion than desire. Alex’s pieces evolve marginally through the process of creating, as her final images have been burning their imprints inside of her until they are finally able to escape onto the paper.
