ANDY INSH Painter of Dreams – Exhibition

Exhibiting in the BONNINGTON COMMUNITY CAFE GALLERY, Tuesday 1st to Wednesday 30th November 2022.

“My pictures are based on places that I know but I try to represent them not as in reality, but rather, how they would reappear in a dreamlike or internal reality.

“I deliberately choose titles that do not suggest any specific meaning so that the viewer can make their own interpretation, based on what they see rather than what they are told.

“I use Pointillist style because I think that in creating in two dimensions the illusion of three, there have been two great innovations, the development of perspective in the fifteenth century and the development of the impressionist style of broken brush strokes in the nineteenth century. The former locates things in space whilst the latter creates the spaces between the things.

“I see my paintings as part of a tradition that runs from Blake through Samuel Palmer, Stanley Spencer, Lowry and Cecil Collins. All these artists had an individual vision if not outside, then at least to one side of the art of their day.

“Finally, just as Lowry wanted to paint Manchester and the North- West, so I want to ‘do’ London and the places that I know.”
