"By not making a portrait of anyone, I would instead be making a portrait of everyone." Artist Alex Gardner
seeks to paint portraits which are universal representations of the human experience, using faceless silhouettes to encourage viewers to identify with the paintings. His new exhibition Blues
, in The Hole in New York City, presents a twist on his usual blank bodies, using cool blue tones to evoke a despondent yet meditative mood which encapsulates the melancholy experience of 2020.
