The work of Halifax-based artist Alex Livingston is generated by electronic drawing tablets and computer software, outputted as large-scale prints on photo paper. These digital images looks like industrially-fabricated cables. "Part gigantic electronic doodles, part expansive, painting-like gestures," wrote Gary Michael Dault, "the interwoven cable-forms ultimately generate a new kind of visual territory that often (and inexplicably) seems strangely familiar (the spirit of Jackson Pollock stirs somewhere within Livingston’s now cooled-down freneticism)."
Alex Livingston was born in Kingston, Ontario, and currently lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is presently Associate Professor of Fine Arts, and Chair of Fine Arts at NSCAD. Alex Livingston has exhibited his paintings in numerous solo and group exhibitions in public and commercial galleries across Canada. His work is in private, corporate and public collections.
