Alex Charrington


We were pleased to have had Alex come to the workshop for further discussions, we shot some test plates and draw a test stone. The tests we have made will help towards the production of editions in the future. From some of the test plates we have been able to produce a few monoprints.

Here are some word from the > Journal

ALEX Charrington is a 2005 fine art graduate from Newcastle University. He works from a studio in Byker, Newcastle, and has exhibited his work in a variety of spaces including Baltic (You Shall Know Our Velocity, 2006), The Bridge Gallery, and London's Drawing Room.

His first solo exhibition, New Adventures in Robotic Watercolour Painting was unveiled at Newcastle's Globe City Gallery in February 2008.

The pieces were produced in collaboration with a robotics engineer to make large scale spirograph paintings using an automated manipulator designed for the manufacturing industry.

Alex has also worked with Commissions North and The Sponsors Club for Arts and Business, to complete two large-scale public art commissions for Gateshead College and Newcastle Building society.

He is influenced by artists and painting techniques of the past and interested in systematic and controlled ways of working. He says: ďAs an artist I aim to make work that engages and challenges the perceptions of a broad audience."
