Painting, Booth 223
Using bold and conflicting colours, shapes and textures, Andrew explores an obsession of finding “the calm within chaos”. He will often use strong colours to energize and yet calm the senses at the same time. He will also combine the opposing effects of texture with smooth luminosity — within the same space — until they find a shared and harmonious balance. As you can see the use of squares or derivatives of them, often play a role. Upon first seeing his work, there is a "wow" factor. His work will grab your attention. Then, as you carefully explore the work and its layers and textures you will find a sense of calm and introspection come over you. Calm within chaos.
