There’s something so cool about what Andrew does. I love the type of paint he uses on his pieces and the shape and colors he chooses to put on the walls. He allows the space and shape of the building dictate how he wants to paint them. The fact that he wants to paint shapes and nothing else is also fascinating. That’s what I like about art shows, you get to see what’s inside the artist’s mind and yet it’s still a mystery. It’s that dream some people have to read people’s mind.
I also like Andrew’s work cuz it’s not painted on canvas. He actually turns the building into an art gallery. That’s something you can see done to a house, turn a basic room into an attraction. And the paint he uses and color plays with your eyes, got yourself asking “Is it popping out? Is it sinking in?” He had a piece with a very very black color that made it look like a part of the room was sucked into a black hole and disappeared. It’s like a magic trick haha. Andrew can make the room feel so much smaller and also make it look so much bigger.
Andrew is doing another show on March 30th and 31st at Helmuth Projects. That will be the last show since the city decided to rebuild that block and probably turn it into luxury homes. Andrew will paint new pieces and also do a live performance (paint) during the show. So don’t miss out!
