Andrew Smith RCA: Coluriau - Colourscapes


For Andrew Smith, the process of making over time, has led to colour being the only real direction for his painting. Focusing on the perception of colour, his recent work explores the visual range of taut motif with colour juxtaposition that align our perception with a seemingly simple image environment.

In his recent work, Smith wanted to engage a more tonal range of hues, less dramatic perhaps and certainly less saturated. The use of chromatic grey and areas of colour that support and contrast others to maximise the quiet potency of tertiary hue, betray a practice starting as analytic. Through realisation, however, his painting is essentially to do with the innate energy of colour. He states ‘For pictorial operation colour needs colour. The interaction of the quality of colour is the entire definition of the image’.
