ANDREW HEMINGWAY

Biography

It is easy to forget we are seeing pastel on board when looking at the cup and paintbrush in Andrew Hemingway's Still Life: Artist's Cup and Washed Brush (2017). Hemingway's pastel paintings are better than the real thing: they lure our eyes and imagination into a space that dematerializes as we become more intimate. Getting closer, looking longer, the image transforms into abstract glazes and discrete marks that are more than a parlour game of visual mimicry. Hemingway's special ordinary things shift from the mundane to the universal through the intelligence and empathy we bring to every encounter.
