An exhibition of works by the late Michael Andrews (1928–1995).
For the last twenty-five years of his life, Andrews was preoccupied with four series of landscapes—Lights, Scotland, Ayers Rock/Australia, and English Landscape—as well as School, a series depicting different groups of fish. In this exhibition, selected works from the five related series will be presented under three elemental themes: earth, air, and water.
Though associated with painters of the so-called School of London, such as Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Leon Kossoff and Frank Auerbach, for exploring the human form and eschewing abstraction, Andrews’s work is radically different. With a few exceptions, his paintings after 1970 are devoid of people, though not without an implied human presence or drama.
