Alex Coxville (1920-2013) was a Canadian painter. I like him because of the uncertain mood we often find in his work. It’s troubling but harmlessly. It’s quiet but strange. It’s daily, but like in a dream – notice his use on “there’s no shadow”. And I love his way to choose a funny point of view, hiding things we would like to see…
Here are 10 paintings :
I like this guy. He’s a good surrealistic artist. Not too disturbing, but yet… No toxic genius, but yet… He’s amazing, though!
It’s a very strange balance in me. Something’s lacking, yes – but it also makes me feel “I want to follow this guy, he’ll surprise me more in a few years”. He’s good enough to make you want to see more, and more, etc. My left eyebrow doesn’t climb, but I have a good smile, and curiosity. Thank you!
