- Andrea Humphries – Paintings 7th Nov- 5th Jan 2014
Andrea Humphries still life images are a collection of distilled forms, drawn from the simple, domestic location in and around her own house and garden. Starting with sketches and studies, the paintings develop into highly designed arrangements between the object and its setting. Placed in flat open spaces designed to push and pull the visual plane; platonic, familiar shapes become altered in scale. A plain, ordinary jug becomes chiselled and monumental, and simple recognizable outlines are endowed with a presence beyond their everyday, common use. Textures, which relate directly or indirectly to the subject, are woven into the paintings. These link interior and exterior areas and present a layer of tactility into the composition. The end result is a dynamic counter balance of shape, colour and surface, providing a window into the quiet but vibrant world of the familial.
‘The surface texture of the board is important to me. The ‘finishes’ made are an accumulation of past imagery. Paint is built up in areas, or I use sandpaper to reveal layers underneath. Often a texture is taken directly from the environment, and is applied to an object or area out of context’.
