Andrew is invested in the problematics of painting. The pictorial and material choices, technical application, and various modes of presentation are the critical aspects he takes responsibility for in his practice. While he believes the paintings he presents are each evidence of an arrested happening, he also acknowledges that as works, they are hopeful propositions toward a longer dialectical approach rather than as examples of the endgame.
Years of working without settling down to take a position on whether to either more fully pronounce skill or accept an enchantment with provisional presentation has left a tension in the work. He is entranced with studying the glimmer and shine of cultural artifacts and master artworks from the millennia, while also practicing a “ramshackle” finish to his own works. This has catalyzed a tension in his intuitive response to materials. Also, it is satisfying to allow a painting a little freedom to diverge from the status quo of the body of work he has created, and this consistent inconsistency illustrates his imperfect, skeptical search for a dime-store sublime.
A longing for clarity compels Andrew to spend time developing and researching visual compositions and surface treatments that can be applied to either traditional panels or more sculpturally aligned substrates. It also explains what might at first seem incongruent, finely finished surfaces in league with more casual approaches. It’s a process in which he is making things he wants to see, and that tends to be a necessary exercise in failure, as his will to bring to form a scant visual notion using paint affects that mental example, resulting in the production of something completely different. And then it begins again.
