Domain is an exhibition of paintings exploring aspects of place forming The Queens Domain, a shared space on the edge of central nipaluna/Hobart. It is a series of sketches, tying together pieces of a complex location made of divergent parts.
These works scratch the surface of the 230 hectares of this communal place that brings together native and introduced elements. The sites and structures form part of a physical and cultural terrain that has been subject to change over time.

Alexander Beech is a painter based in nipaluna/ Hobart. His practice is linked to the landscape and more recently to places near where he lives and works. He immerses himself in the landscape reflecting on events past and present and synthesises connections between the subject matter and refines what is laid down in paint. Alexander received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours (First Class) and a Master of Fine Art and Design (Painting) from the University of Tasmania. He has exhibited work in a number of states and has been a finalist in several significant art prizes including The Churchie National Emerging Art Prize, The Glover Prize, Hadley’s Art Prize and the Macquarie Group Emerging Art Prize. His work is held in private collections and the Macquarie Group Collection.
