Giles Alexander in NYC

13 April 2017

What started as a metaphorical stroll in the Northern woods of his past is beginning to bloom into a Soho strut in Manhattan. Giles Alexander's pre antipodean life is baring fruit right now as his work hangs in a survey show shoulder to shoulder with the vanguard of American realist painters of the past half century.

Louis. K Meisel, a leading realist commentator and NY gallerist since the late 60's came to know of Alexander’s automotive miniatures by way of a mutual friend who heads up Christie's Contemporary department NYC. Alexander heeded the call and flew over for the Exhibition which opened last Thursday 6th April and runs until mid May at Meisel's uptown space on West 57th street. The gallery, considered one of the cornerstones of the American realist movement works with such luminaries as Chuck Close, John Salt and Don Jacot.

Giles, who has spent time in NY sporadically over the past two decades, relished the opportunity of revisiting galleries; great collections such as the Frick and Met, to which his practice is indebted. Personal connections both new and old have helped facilitate cultural connections that have the potential to send an artist stratospheric in a New York Minuet and enrich the practice of any who chance a bite from the big apple.
