Saw this at Gargosian Gallery. Terrific image in every sense. His work shocked me into realising that with all my experiments with abstract expressionistic painting I’ve lost sight of the essentials. Andrews attention to composition is extreme but just maybe that’s why some critics maintain that he only painted masterpieces. You can see the marks on the canvases where he gridded up his drawings. The paintings are brilliant. Heartening to see that he favoured acrylics over oils in many of his work too. His subject matter of Australian Outback was also very appealing to me.
After seeing this exhibition I’m returning to basics a little and thinking more about composition whilst trying to retain the intuitive way I work.
