While drawing inspiration and feeling from the Romantic tradition, Andy Waite’s contemporary landscapes are essentially expressionist in form and energy.
They are a poetic celebration of the English sky and weather in all their elemental power. With a passion for spontaneous brushwork, the balance of harmony between the still and the ever changing is sought in each piece.
“While I am consistently drawn to painting the landscape, I find that sometimes it is less about familiar geography and more about an evocation of somewhere I would like to inhabit. There are traces of half remembered places, scents, birdsong, the movement of water and skies; there is a search for an Arcadian landscape, a future to become nostalgic about, all expressed through colours that are just waiting to meet each other.”
