Alexander Haywood (b.1992, London UK) graduated in 2016 from The University of Edinburgh with a Bachelors degree (with honours) in Painting, and after working in Berlin for several years he now resides in East London. His work has been exhibited internationally, including Michael Reid Berlin, Goethe University Frankfurt, Compass Gallery Glasgow, Rea! Art Fair Milan, and The Oxo Tower London.
His practice explores the boundary between the real and the imagined, infusing the outer world as it is conventionally experienced with subjective inner perceptions. He uses paint to channel and reflect feelings, emotions and subtle states of consciousness, revealing both what is unique to his own psyche and universal to the human condition. Whether it is through his use of perspective, attention to detail or emotive expression, Alexander aims to create an intimate and immersive experience, with the intention of dissolving the separation between subject and object, the image and the viewer.
