Andrew Squire, a Scottish artist, trained and still practices as
an architect. As a painter, he remains deeply engaged with the treatment
of space. His work is poised on the boundary between description
and abstraction. Working in acrylic and gouache, he builds up fields
of intense colour pink, tangerine, indigo which resonate
against each other, striking up complex relationships of their own.
Objects, reduced to their visual essence, flicker between the imagined
pictorial space they inhabit and the two-dimensional surface of
the panel; this tension is central to his compositions, endowing
them with a distinctive energy. His most recent work is inspired
by time spent on the coast of Newfoundland.
Andrew graduated from Manchester University School of Architecture.
His work has been successfully shown in Europe and in Scotland,
most recently with the Roger Billcliffe Gallery in Glasgow.
