My name is Andrew Newton and have been painting 9 years, and graduated in 2008 with a 1st class(hons) degree in Fine Art.
At the base of my work I deal with realism but a lot of the concepts of my practice deal with the deeper voyeurs perspective and the way the mind swallows up the mundanity of the everyday world.
I work with human faces and form for my subject matter. I paint section by section of the image using a grid method. This gives an overall detailed projection the subject, giving the audience the ability to scan my work as if it was a found object, as with no focal point. I want to force my audience to analyze with scutiny and push their obedience towards the image all over the full canvas's cropped surface area.
The abstract marks in my work represent the minds fluctuation from concentration in any given moment. The canvas acting like a cropped window like a stage on the world, and its subject being the performer. The abstract forms also display the minds intuition to feel the actual act aswell as the hyper-realist element which is a detailed conformity towards the subject, no matter how banal.
The mundanity of my work is important as it has to show the everyday and random expression, theme, moods and subtleties of the changing world.
The aesthetic of my paintings is the demonstrate the minds eye of fleeting imagery on the spontaniety of moment. The crop, the awkward expression and the surface design is to expose an ultra truthful interpretation of life combining the illustrative and intuative art marks to produce one decisive visulization.
