Alec Huxley continues to explore a wide range of subject matter through a detailed but softened figurative style. His creative skills were honed while drawing inspiration from living in Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square and southern industrial neighborhoods. This combined with his love of light and shadow, the geometry of structures and spaces, as well as the innate and oftentimes enigmatic drama of life and art. A self-taught painter, he captures cinematic-like cityscapes and intimate, familiar interiors. Ghostlike figures wax and wane through the scenery and at other times, well-dressed men and women donning space helmets drift amongst the distinctive architecture of San Francisco. Working methodically through photographs, many works are filtered by a dominant color, contemplating the diffusion of light through each space.
After many years in the Pacific Northwest he recently transplanted to San Francisco’s Lower Haight neighborhood. His background includes graphic design, photography, studies at The School of Visual Concepts and The Photo Center Northwest, both in Seattle, a BA from the University of Puget Sound and a career in the printing industry before committing to art full time in 2009. Alec is also the founder of Adult Flavored Pudding.
