Though recognized for his highly textured, painterly style, Andrew likes to delve into a variety of mediums. Digital abstractions are one of his favorites. “Getting the right balance of colours, shapes, contrast and visual motion is what it is all about for me – and then letting the imagination interpret what you see as a viewer is the adventure. My paintings initially evolved from an abstract style. The loosely painted forms in the gardens and landscapes that I call ‘eco-scapes’ give the viewer a ‘handle’ to begin from, but I always hope that the imagery draws them into the very intricate blending of colours and textures of both the foreground and background. The backgrounds are actually abstract paintings unto themselves and require all the same characteristics of these digital abstractions to be successful.”
