Andrew Hardwick b 1961
Andrew Hardwick is a British artist born in Bristol, England in 1961 where he still resides.
His paintings often depict the urban sprawl located around industrial areas, including redundant factories and polluted waste lands. Other works draw inspiration from the more typically idyllic locations such as Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.
His paintings are heavily layered with different types of paint (often sourced from recycling centre), plaster, plastics, soils, pigments, roofing felt, hay and other unconventional materials. Hardwick’s work makes reference to concepts of change, memory, history and emotion.
Andrew Hardwick achieved an MA in Fine Art at the University of Wales. He is an elected Academician at the Royal West of England Academy. His works are held many private collections both in the UK and abroad. He is represented by the Anima-Mundi Gallery based in St Ives, Cornwall.
