About Alec Laughlin
Alec is a painter, photographer and designer with a studio in the historic Citizens Warehouse in the downtown Tucson Warehouse Arts District.
Painting is his primary affection and focus. Richly textured with acrylic and charcoal, his paintings are expressionistic in style, the subject almost always being the human face and form, primarily fictitious and conceptual, however including a series of real persons—admired artists and figures of the past. He often sets fire to the larger works, on aged and weathered wood, to enrich texture and manifest a spontaneous blending and subtle alteration of colors by applying the fire multiple times during the course of painting while the medium is still drying.
Alec's photography is primarily black and white, with the human form again being the subject. Though fine art prints are his first interest, he also provides photographic, digital tech and retouching services by assignment. He offers services in graphic and web design with clients whom include universities, artists, writers and publishers.
