Inspiration for This Work
This work is a response to an artists residency in the Arid Zone of NSW: Fowlers Gap.
"A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing." William Dobell
Andrew's art making practice likens itself to the unique nature of the bowerbird: a representation of the eclectic mix of beauty and interests that surrounds the artist's life.
Andrew's artworks talk of escape: welcoming the viewer to access the colours of his inspired mind.
