As an abstract artist, Alden works in the medium of acrylics. Each blank canvas is an exciting new challenge where color, texture and composition ultimately combine to create something unexpected. His random brush stroke or paint splash is the explanation point that signals the painting is complete.
Alden’s art reflects how he sees the world as to convey and capture the feeling, aura or sense of a subject. He is careful not to overwork or belabor a painting, always looking for the right balance between enough information and too much. His inspiration comes from nature, travel, architecture and his exciting career in advertising in Chicago and Western New York.
