Alex's starting point using photography with mixed media is a series of photographic portraits of model Phil Williams, which he manipulated and distorted by using photographic emulsions on collage and oil paint. The imagery was influenced very much by Francis Bacons distortion paintings of the human figure and portraits.

He continues the theme with revered classical sculptures, such as Michelangelo's “David”, damaging their beauty, again using photo emulsion on unpredictable materials such as found objects, bins drinks cans and dustbins. Ironically we can still discern incredible beauty through the decay and destruction of those battered and damaged ‘canvases'.

Creating the distortions he reveals a paradox in that, despite his irreverence and treatment, the finished work possess a curious beauty. The viewer's eyes scan every inch of this work in an attempt to read every detail and flaw.
