PICTURE PERFECT: Artist Jeremy Alexander
A MORETON artist has followed in the footsteps of L.S. Lowry and Henry Moore after seeing his work displayed at a prestigious national art exhibition in London.
Artwork by architect Jeremy Alexander, of Pedlars End, was chosen from 600 entries to go on show at the annual exhibition of the Royal Society of British Artists at the Mall Galleries, London.
The exhibition showcased art work from the society's internationally-acclaimed members alongside the best selected work from open submission.
Mr Alexander, who described his work as "slightly abstract", said he was pleased to see his work exhibited.
"It's nice to get something in there, especially as it can be difficult for new artists to see their work exhibited."
Mr Alexander said an American gallery is keen to exhibit his work after seeing his display at the Mall Gallery.
On the exhibition, he said: "It's quite a good exhibition, some can be patchy, however many galleries seem uninterested in the avant-garde or abstract work ."

Artist on show

A MORETON artist's work, including a landscape featuring Magdalen Laver Church, is to be displayed at the prestigious Mall gallery in London.

Jerry Alexander, of Pedlars End, had three paintings chosen by the Royal Society of British Artists, which are on display at its annual exhibition ending on Sunday.

Mr Alexander's work is primarily buildings in landscape, boatscape and semi-abstracts, drawing from either local beauty spots and East Anglian landscapes or views over the Mediterranean.

He said: "There are some terrific English landscapes, which are almost as intense as the Med but in a different, more moody way.
