Alex Colville Style
Drawing his inspiration from the world around him, from the most repetitive gestures of everyday life, Alex Colville places his unsettling juxtapositions of figures, objects and animals in an ambiguous atmosphere of disquieting tranquillity, as though time were suspended. His compositions are rigorously constructed according to a precise geometry and executed with a technique that consists of minuscule dabs of paint applied meticulously dot by dot - POINTILLISM
