Alex’s paintings are eloquent articulations of his percepts of the beauty and aesthetic value of his mystifying subjects. He works imaginatively to combine Central Asian decorative colours with classical European and Russian traditions. Even as he portrays tumultuous oceanic scenes filled with disparate religious motifs, his works reveal a profound inner serenity. The paintings are like magical realism in visual form, exploring universal themes of the life cycle and the hidden mysteries of the universe. His works vary dramatically in scale, from medium sized paintings to expansive public spaces. His largest work to date is the mural, (The Lady of St Kilda), which spans the railway bridge in Carlisle Street Balaclava, Victoria. In every piece he draws on themes from ancient polytheistic practices and tribal rituals creating unique universes that fold in onto themselves. Alex Nemirovsky studied in St Petersburg. His influences range from the great international masters of the Hermitage to the Australian wilderness. He has exhibited his works throughout Europe and Australia.
