Artist Statement: Each painting presents a slew of possible interactions to explore as I work the process from the initial inception, to the final rendition.
Throughout the application I strive to keep a sense of life in the work, that very hard to categorise element that one has to feel, perhaps even intuit rather than simply reason. It can be as simple as an unexpected placement in the composition or an addition or subtraction of another element that can bring a work to life.
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Dimensions: 83 x 40 cms
CHG Director's Statement: Andrew has been a practicing artist for more than 25 years, with solo exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne, with selected works included in collections around the world. Andrew works primarily in acrylics on canvas.
His interest in painting began in late high school, when his early studies of perspective and still life studies won the Sydney Morning Heral Art Heritage Prize in 1983. He began university studies in physics 1984, but soon switched to fine arts, majoring in painting and photography at the City Institue of Art (now known as College of Fine Arts, UNSW).
Since graduating in 1987, Andrew has pursued his career as a full-time artist, exhibiting regularly in Sydney, Melbourne and the Central Coast. His works are held in numerous Australian and International collections in Europe, the US, the Middle East and Canada.
Travelling extensively throughout his career, Andrew has consistently sought to draw together subject matter from a variety of sources, reflective of his fascination with light, texture, perspective and ideas.
