Artist's Biography

Andy Curry

With a background in interior design the majority of Andy’s paintings are interiors within which he likes to examine the quality and plays of light that create the mood within a given space.

He likes to paint looking straight into the light or show the dramatic effect of shafts of light entering the confines of a room. His landscapes are usually based around the atmospheric conditions of sunrise/sunset with low sunlight casting long and textural shadows, or misty mornings.

He paints entirely in watercolour, initially laying down large merging wet washes to determine the source of light and the foundations for the mood and atmosphere. Working back from the 'light' the defining forms are gradually overlaid in stronger but at the same time unifying colour.

Andy's background in Interior Design and Architecture means that he illustrates for Architectural practices and also paints to commission for private clients.
