At a glance, the work of Alex Charrington appears to be the flawless result of an instrumental recording, bearing compositions of a pared down geometric language seemingly derived from a process of exact measure (Untitled at 6 RPM).


Whilst precision and method is fundamental to Charrington in the making of all his paintings, drawings and prints, the layers of pigmented motifs slowly transcend the means of their existence to reveal the fragile, relative and ephemeral nature of his medium.
