Alex Uxbridge writes: “ Painting is a process of illusion – the illusion that paint is a real image, a beautiful image, but ultimately it is still paint. I want to see that”. "Some artists still seem to find it exciting to endlessly question the nature of what art is. I don’t particularly. Maybe because I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth - into an aristocratic family, growing up at the Anglesey Stately Home, Plas Newydd and recently inheriting the title, Marquess of Anglesey - maybe because of the lucky privilege of being securely attached to a place and a history, I haven’t been driven to carve out a niche of (probably spurious) originality. For me, it’s far more interesting to search for a fresh personal response to what I see around me - including the beautiful landscape of Anglesey and Snowdonia - using, mainly, very traditional means.
