My name is Alex Hoernlein
I was born in Germany and emigrated to Australia with my parents and siblings at the age of 8.
My upbringing was very creative and influenced by the wide open spaces and colours, so unique in the Australian landscape, sky and beaches.
I have been focusing on more abstract elements of colour, shade and shapes and have landed in this whirlpool which is acrylic flow art.
I have successfully undertaken several large commissions, the most recent being a 9 painting installation in January 2020.
I have exhibited at the Berwick Show in 2019, winning first prize and also, a high commendation, in my section and the Cardinia World Inaugural Resin and Flow Art Show and Exhibition 2019 , where I won the Best Flow Artwork prize , also selling Artwork at that exhibition.
My work is evolving as I experiment with technique, paint and mediums where my current interest is in metallic interactions using mainly gold and bronze pigments, so many things to try, never enough time.
During the pandemic, i have returned to brush work and have found this to be uplifting but challenging, while trying to bring life to new technique and expression.
All my work is on stretched canvas.
Thank you for your interest.
