Description

A taste of the art work of Alex Mendelssohn

 

Composing on Canvas

Fact: Felix Mendelssohn, the famous German born composer and conductor (1809-1847) was also a dab hand at painting and sketching.

Fact: Alex Mendelssohn, great-great-grandson of Felix, is an accomplished Andamooka artist.

You could say although both men came from the same gene pool, Alex's life took a different course, all the way to the dust and isolation of the outback opal mining town of Andamooka Australia.

Alex moved to Andamooka in 1958 to mine for opal, and has been painting since 1973 "I always believed through my background there was a gene pool of artistic talent," Alex reflected.

Over the years Alex has experimented with all media and found he prefers to work with oil on canvas. Music is a strong influence in Alex's semi-abstract work and the subtle beauty of the outback is inspiration for his landscapes.

Alex has in a senes combined his love of opal with his passion for painting. Play of colour is a strong theme in his oil works with his paintings showing great depth when displayed under light

This bushman, who still calls Andamooka home, first exhibited in Adelaide Aust. at Miller Anderson Stores art gallery and since then has participated in major exhibitions around Australia, as well as numerous Roxby and Andamooka residents. More recently he has been exhibiting annually and has private collectors world-wide directly from this web-site.

You too will find Alex's unique style and technique a refreshing change to the modern Art of today.
