Studio Sale | Alex McIntyre (14/20)


In 2014 Alex moved to Hertfordshire from London. Almost overnight, her practice changed from work relating to the human figure, to explorations of land and sky. She spent the autumn and spring getting up in the morning in the dark and running through the dawn. This was, in part, a way to acclimatise to her surroundings and understand the new landscape. During these runs she discovered the relationship of movement, creativity and the importance of light. The title for this artwork is inspired by the writing of Robert Macfarlane who describes a crossing over from one state of being to another through walking - border crossing.

This is one of a series of rustic drawings in light fast acrylic ink on gessoed cardboard, hand framed by the artist using reclaimed floorboards approximately 100 years old. These pieces are imperfectly raw, physical, and have a vintage feel.

It is one of the only ones remaining from this period. It was shown in the exhibition with The Other Art Fair in 2015 where she first began to receive attention for her work.
