Artist Spotlight: Alexander Appleby

A selection of paintings by artist Alexander Appleby, currently based in Lancaster, UK. Recreating nature in scenarios of his own making, Appleby’s work is influenced by the vivid colours and rugged terrain of Northern England. Not limited to any single perspective, Appleby fuses fictional data with real world inspiration. His smooth-surfaced trees, mountains, and plants capture the beauty of nature itself (where no two things are exactly alike) while his mechanical, daisy-like plants recall the graphic style of classic computer games. The result is a celebration of nature that simultaneously encompasses that which is not natural at all. The improbability of the compositions work together to create standalone scenes of subtle disruption. See more from Alexander Appleby below!
