Andrew Curtis

Painter

SAOS Open Studios 2017 Much of my work is inspired by my travels and the places I have seen and is rooted in observation and attempting to capture what Alexander Pope called the "genius of the place". Abstraction is one means by which one can produce work that gets underneath the surface of a subject.
If I have time I will sit down with an easel and paint a conventional oil study. I also always travel with a sketchbook in which I record what I see and make notes of my impressions of a place. Back in the studio, work begins in "translating" the gathered impressions.
