Alex J. Herbert


Prayer, meditaion, a need for uplift is central to Alexander Herbert's abstract paintings. by Richard Inman (East Anglian Daily Times)

I began painting in a monochromatic op art style at the age of twelve in 1966 after seeing the work of Bridgett Riley.
I fell in love with colour in 1968, after seeing Turners later works at the Tate gallery.
Colour has been my great love ever since.
Although my work may appear abstract it is nearly always inspired by something tangible.
Inspiration comes from music, poetry, prose, the search for a sublime expression of the human condition, and the desire to rise above the profane and base and reach for the divine.
