Description

WORKSHOP

Building on his exhibition, Dirty Paintings, Andy Edwards is delivering a workshop that will introduce the history of assemblage and collage, before exploring aspects of the urban visual environment and collecting discarded materials. You will crop, edit and re-interpret these by combining scanning, Photoshop, inkjet as well as raw collage using ink, paper and glue.


ANDY EDWARDS

A graphic designer and design lecturer in Leeds, Andy’s art has been an erratic, private and haphazard activity, made in tandem with commercial design work. He collects ephemera and discarded materials to make collages, paintings and drawings, loosely informed by Japanese wabi-sabi ideas of beauty and imperfection, the found and the made. As a design professional he works with cultural organisations, public bodies and architects. He studied Fine Art at the University of Leeds.

Andy noticed that the residual paint marks left on the paper protecting his table were often more interesting than the main work itself and so the concept of ‘Dirty Paintings’ emerged. With a desire to select, organise, collage and re-create chaotic formal relationships, he makes work that draws on vernacular, incidental, urban visual mess: traces of old sellotape left to collect dust on a noticeboard, over-painted graffiti, marker-pen tags. The work toys with notions of spontaneity and expression (inherent in gestural marks) contradicted by the discipline of selecting, planning and ordering.

EXHIBITION

Dirty Paintings is open at Left Bank Leeds on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10am - 4pm throughout October and November. It is free to attend.
