Alex Chamberlin Paintings
I like to begin the portrait process with an initial, consultation only, meeting in which the ideas of both parties regarding style and composition are discussed and agreed. Following this meeting, a minimum of three sittings is usually required. The first of these will be for the further development of ideas, preliminary drawings and photographs. Subsequent sittings are for the development of the painting and finishing touches. The subject should allow approximately two hours per visit for each sitting, which can be carried out in the sitter's home.

Artist's Statement:
With his work, Alex Chamberlin tries to capture the middle ground between a portrait and a life study, and the intimacy that can arrive from that moment. He intends to allow the viewer to become familiar with the subject. Unlike straight studies, his paintings relate to the individual on a personal level. His way of working has come about via a number of influences. He admires the work of J.W Waterhouse and his ability to capture a fleeting moment in a style only afforded by photography. He also respects the linear quality of Egon Schieles’ work and the structured brushstrokes of John Singer Sargent. He is currently working towards another one-man show for spring next year, at Collins and Hastie, Park Walk.
