Alfie Caine - New Now: Modern & Contemporary Art London Friday, April 19, 2024 | Phillips
  • “Alfie Caine’s worlds operate at all levels; in the architecture and the expanses of fantasised countryside beyond their windows, down to the minutiae of cutlery, floor tiles, and freshly picked wildflowers. These details draw the viewer closer in as we are offered places to sit, as we take the place of the missing inhabitants. The artist always leaves a little concealed within his world to maintain the feeling of anticipation and curiosity that drives his painting; we, like Caine, are left to wonder and imagine what might exist within those spaces he has left for us.”
    —Anna Monks, 'Artist Spotlight: Alfie Caine', BOOOOM, 21 February 2022, online
