Join us for the launch of our three new Spring exhibitions: "Regeneration" works of Andy Cairns; "Colour Chart" works of Heather Boxall; "The Long Walk" works of Steve Thorpe.

In these three showcases, the artists are concerned with the materials behind the work. Whether it's Heather Boxall's consideration of the British Colour Council Dictionary of Colour Standards and how this has shaped the production of works; Steve Thorpe's sparing use of found objects, honestly interpreted; or Andy Cairns rescue of abandoned materials to reveal a narrative of lost objects.

The exhibitions run from 16th April – 7th May. For more information on the exhibitions visit:

Regeneration - Andy Cairns

Artizan Gallery welcomes Andy Cairns and his artworks that exhibit a love and passion for found objects.

Recycling is central to Andy's art – rescuing materials that have been abandoned, valuing them, and giving them a new sense of purpose. He believes that waste is one of the worst aspects of society – wasting the potential of many people as well as our resources. Working in assemblage – bringing together different elements to create interesting juxtapositions and harmonies – he is particularly interested in developing the stories that objects want to tell when combined together, be they historical, biographical or imaginary.

Andy is drawn to old, corroded, weathered materials and artefacts, finding that when materials and artefacts that have a history embedded in their surfaces come together there is a tremendous chatter and creative energy as they begin to weave new narratives in unexpected ways. He tries to capture this chatter in his work, configuring the individual elements into a composition that sets off creative narratives in the mind of the viewer.

Regeneration runs from 16th April – 7th May with a private viewing on 15th April 6 – 8 pm. For more information on the exhibition visit https://www.art-hub.co.uk/ex/regeneration22  or to join us for the launch visit https://www.art-hub.co.uk/events-1/april22pv

Artist ( Description ): 

Andy Cairns works in the field of assemblage – bringing together different elements to create interesting juxtapositions and harmonies. He is particularly interested in developing the stories that objects want to tell when combined – be they historical, biographical or imaginary. He is drawn to old, corroded, weathered materials and artefacts. He finds that when materials and artefacts that have a history embedded in their surfaces come together there is a tremendous chatter and creative energy as they begin to weave new narratives that take their history and embellish it in imaginative ways. Andy tries to capture this chatter in his work, configuring the individual elements into a composition that sets off creative narratives in the mind of the viewer. Andy studied Art and Environmental Education at Lancaster University before working in community arts and then further education, teaching across the art and design range but particularly drawing, sculpture and photography. In 2004 he Completed an MA in Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and in 2014 he moved to Devon in April 2014 and now runs West Devon Art Workshops.
