Members are invited to VIP Preview of Iain Andrew’s solo show at Castlefield Gallery.

Andrews is perhaps best known for his paintings which draw on art history and his own rich imagination for their content and feature figures and forms which hover on the verge of abstraction. On first sight these works appear to have been executed quickly in an intuitive and gestural manner, but closer inspection reveals an array of different techniques and styles. In recent years, Andrews has expanded his practice to include a series of etchings on found desks which draw on the imagery in his paintings but also his work as an art psychotherapist.

Andrews graduated from University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (1996) and an MA in Painting (1998). He also has a PG Dip in Art Psychotherapy (2000) from Sheffield University. His work has been included in group shows both in the UK and abroad and he is represented by Man & Eve.
