Andrew Sutherland

Andrew Sutherland gallery

Andrew Sutherland's work is at once both playful and charming. It reveals his ability to see the world in all its light and laughter, a window into a world of wonder and surprise.

Andrew uses a mixture of collage and acrylic paint to bring his images to life, the completed work jumps at the viewer in its boldness and use of stark yet intricate colours. One is immediately drawn towards the canvas, where scrutiny reveals delicate details, worked touches of collage and paint techniques which bring the viewer into conversation with the work.

The resulting narrative often seems to inform the intent of the work, Sutherland's vivid imagination opens a realm where each thing, be it object or animal, has a story of its own.

Often the narrative is reflective in nature and in conjunction with the work transport the viewer into a dreamy state, where beauty blossoms in colour and composition. Other times he pokes fun at our human endeavors, contrasting in scale and meaning, and much like the Rubik's Cube often presents one with a problem not easily solved.
