Alex Hartley

Photography, sculpture and architecture often combine in the work of Alex Hartley. His work is concerned with how we experience the world around us, both the natural and the built environment, with a particular interest in “iconic” architecture and injecting it with new meaning. Hartley’s work has ranged from wall–based photographic compositions to architectural installations and recent work has included large–scale, photographic works with low–relief architectural elements.

Hartley’s first solo exhibition was with the Anderson O’Day Gallery, London, in 1992. Since then his work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Denmark, National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan, the Natural History Museum, and at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh. In 2011, Victoria Miro Gallery in London held a solo show of Hartley’s work and in January 2000, Hartley won the Cass Sculpture Foundation ART2000 Commission Prize with his first outdoor sculpture, Pavilion. In 2005, Hartley won the Linklaters Commission, the Barbican, London.
