The Display Gallery is presenting some of my work as part of a group show, ID, from 14 April.
Hosted by Display Gallery, the show marks Chrom-Art’s debut as a new Social Enterprise on the global contemporary art scene, dedicated to supporting artists at the beginning of their career.
Chrom-Art’s curator Kris Cieslak has created an exhibition that aims to be a foray into, and a celebration of, the fascinating apparatus that is the human mind. The title of the show references the division of psyche according to Sigmund Freud where ID is the tumultuous, innate part of the personality that contains all human’s basic, instinctual drives.
Unified by a common interest in the human being (their lives, their stories, and their interior journeys) the selected artists have produced a diverse body of work panning collage, painting, digital illustration, and sculpture that seeks to reveal the major influence of the Id over the Ego, their constant battle and the ultimate dominance of the first over the latter.
Andrew lives and works in a former chapel in South-East London. Interested in the unexplored possibilities of analogue media, he has used the space available to construct a unique ‘lightless’ studio to make his colour photograms. His working method dispenses with a camera, reducing the process to the basic elements of light, paper, subject and chemistry. Andrew recently returned to formal study, graduating from University of Westminster with first class honours in photography.
Andrew has exhibited his work extensively, including at Shutterhub, Leyden Gallery, Candid Arts, Urmson-Burnett Gallery, Silverprint, Photofusion, and The Chapel Gallery.
