Rodney James Alexander studied fine arts at the University of Newcastle, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2000.
Alexander has exhibited widely including solo exhibitions ‘Chromascura’ and ‘Zephyr the West Wind’ in 2017. His work is held in many private collections.
Alexander’s obsession with flowers began early one morning at the Hobart Botanical Gardens in 2015. His oil paintings celebrate the complexity and beauty of flora. His main aim “is to challenge the viewer to see the beauty of nature as a bee or insect would; as a powerful urge, a survival instinct. To show an object in nature that we see as small and merely pleasing to the senses as the sole repository of our every urge.”
