Alexander McKenzie was born in 1971 in Sydney, Australia, the son of Scottish migrants. He studied at the Julian Ashton Art School where in 1994 he won both the inaugural Brett Whiteley Scholarship to the school and the Brereton Memorial Prize for draughtsmanship from the Art Gallery of NSW.
He is known for his evocative luminous landscape paintings which recall both the themes of Western symbolist painting and the techniques of the 15th Century Dutch Old Masters. Increasingly Alexander McKenzie’s paintings evoke a strong narrative content whilst retaining his preoccupation with the effects of light and atmosphere.
