Visual Language: In Conversation
“Producing Andy's instantly recognisable hand, this edition has been handprinted by master printmaker, Jonny Akers at St. Dunstan's House – a stunningly converted church in the heart of Bedminster, Bristol, a city famed for a vibrant street art culture and creative spirit. By pushing what is possible with no compromise, Jonny mixes traditional craft and technical progression. These screenprints have been hand-pulled and all inks mixed by hand to match Andy's giant Loose Ends paintings. Look out for playful trapping juxtapositions and the interpretation of colour.
The compositions exemplify Andy's fine arts and design career background. A graphic perspective deconstructs and reassembles formal elements and principles as découpage. Serving as a democratic entry point into the work, these high fidelity visions also form new arrangements that produce a chain reaction for a deeper conceptualisation of theory and practice if invoked.
‘Loose Ends’ serve as an exploration into the conceptual vocabulary and understanding of visual language. A projection of meaning that isn't based upon metaphor alone. It is almost like a dark art - sometimes not quite manifesting, there is a feeling and emotion, esoteric in nature that you can't reach out and grasp but you have to dance around a little to change your perception”.
