This book explores artist Naomi Alexander’s approach to painting and drawing interiors over the past 50 years. Subjects range from stately homes such as Chatsworth to mud houses in Egypt and include the artist’s home in London.
‘The artist’s new book Domesticity records homes with personal and historic significance, writes Alison Oldham.
Painter and print-maker Naomi Alexander has always preferred depicting interiors, working alone, to painting landscapes outside where onlookers can be a distraction. “I find a sense of security working within four walls,” she says. “I have a curiosity and love of the past reflected in old furnishings and I am nostalgic about buildings and want to capture specific moments so as not to lose them.”’
