The written word has long exerted an influence on Alexander Irving’s art practice. His upcoming exhibition, Readings, is a selection of recent paintings and works on paper produced at the Banff Centre and Open Studio in Toronto. This new work continues to explore his relationship with painting, text, and the poetics of place, space and time.
Toronto based artist Alexander Irving holds an MFA from York University and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Irving has exhibited his work since 1986 and has shown at Birch Libralato, Blackwood Gallery and Diaz Contemporary. In 2009 Irving’s work was included in Carte Blanche 2: Painting – a survey of new Canadian painting. In 2012 Irving’s work was included in the ambitious 60 Painters exhibition and catalogue, an overview of contemporary Canadian painting.
Irving has taught at the Ontario College of Art and Design and, at present, holds the post of Lecturer at the University of Toronto, Scarborough Campus.
