Andrew's work exposes the raw, visceral identity of the human subconscious. He strips bare the protective facade of the seemingly mundane and ordinary, exposing our deepest fears attached to love, angst, sadness, alienation and identity. Like voyeurs, we are happy to look in on the frailities of others but at the same time we are forced to confront the idea that, in essence, we are observing ourselves. This duality provokes both attachment and repulsion in equal measure.
I want to create emotively led art that speaks of the love, personal growth, anger, loss and the private confusions we all experience in our lives. Perhaps subversive, tender, malevolent, compassionate – the need to see raw human existence drives it all forwards.
