Alex J Gardner

Originally from a theatre background as a designer and technical manager, I have spent the past 7 years working as an artist and designer.

I have worked on a variety of design projects, including museum and art exhibition design, marketing and promotional design, and book design and illustration. Past clients include Manchester-based charity Back on Track, Cartwheel Arts, Home Mcr and Queer Media Festival.

I work across a variety of media, including digital art and design, printmaking and papercut. I have exhibited at a number of events in Derbyshire, and have produced a number of large scale artworks, most notably for the People’s History Museum (Election! Britain votes... 2015; The EuroTunnel 2016).

My current artistic practice focuses much more on landscape and my place within it, how time spent journeying through the semi-wilderness areas of the UK informs my narrative, and how an understanding of the natural history of our hills and mountains can enhance our understanding of ourselves and the modern society in which we exist.
