Alex Ingram

Alex Ingram is an artist creating paintings, poetry and performance. He has a BA in Sculpture from Glasgow School of Art and a MA in Fine Art from Saint Martins School of Art and Design. He has exhibited at the Whitechapel Art Gallery and at the Bloomberg Space in London

A Multimedia Artist, he uses photography, video, poetry, performance and painting and is interested in the concept of time as structure, ideas of ‘Nothing’, tactile interaction and the physical nature of thought counterbalancing the continuity of process where meaning is in the works intuitive conclusions.  

His recent series of imagined landscapes endeavour to use the subject of landscapes as a tool for the ideas and expression of form and beauty. This comes from the process of interplay with the mediums he uses and the final arrival of a piece of work where aesthetics are a cognitive activity.

Alex has exhibited his work both in Britain and abroad in galleries, festivals and as site specific work. He has also published fourteen books and completed three albums of his songs.

” Art enables me to make intuitive decisions and find solutions naturally. I think therapeutically this activity of making where play is started, worked through and completed is a process where problem solving can be practiced. By recognising this sensation, we can learn through it and familiarise ourselves with our ability to trust in a process we may not fully understand and give us the tools to work through and come to conclusions we may not have expected or foreseen. This sense of completion and surprise in the work keeps me engaged and rewarded. “
