How many exhibition works:
Andy Waite paints landscapes that inspire one with almost religious awe. Working from both memory and imagination, his large, abstracted brushstrokes deftly capture unpredictable English weather patterns as they swing from docile to wild and back again in a matter of moments. Skyscapes are dramatic, his clouds bruised and back-lit with shades of pink, purple and ochre, suggesting the fury of an imminent rainstorm or the heat of the sun about to break through.
Waite’s paintings leave one feeling quietly uneasy; nothing ever quite stays the same, change is a constant if not omnipotent presence in both nature and within us. We are reminded that darkness can only exist in the presence of light, and good can only be understood in the context of evil.
Andy Waite is a British artist working in the tradition of the Romanticists.
