"I painted this painting over 4 years, returning to the same spot. It’s actually my favourite painting and if it was never sold I’d be grateful. In it I try to escape some of the clichéd woodland paintings and go for a style which makes the viewer part of the painting."
Andrew has painted in excess of 100 pieces to date. His early works consisted of detailed still life with interesting perspectives.
The obsession with perspective is characteristic of these pieces.
True perspective actually consists of curves and is only true from one point. However, a ‘road to Damascus’ experience caused him to drop the rigorous attention to detail and move into a freer style, allowing expression and some interpretation of events. Learning styles and techniques from painters such as Nicholas Verrall and Georgio Morand White has created a fluid but realistic style. However, White sees painting and traditional art still as a stop to learn and improve from others before proceeding to more creative and dynamic mediums. Forthcoming work will include the use of plasma screens and mathematical art to make a useful but beautiful work.
