Alexander Beech

Grey from The Bridge

oil on board
65 x 70 cm
In this painting Alexander Beech explores a familiar landscape of the Sydney harbour. Painted from an elevated perspective and in monochromatic tones, it depicts a single ferry as it serenely and mysteriously makes its way across the Harbour, as thick dark clouds materialise from above to blanket the landscape and the hazy impressions of the surrounding shoreline and environment symbiotically merge to capture a moment that resonates a more considered and powerful connection with the subject.
