Andy Sylvester

My work is concerned with figuration and the representation of the world. This can take the form of landscapes or portrait. I am interested in composition and the way that colour, line, mark and texture and can be used to evoke a narrative or emotion within an image. My work makes references to art history, literature, classicism and symbolism. I am interested in the idea that paintings can be read and provide layers of meaning once you begin to understand the references within them.
