Andrew Portwood

Artist Statement

 

My pictures are personal statements rendered through a dialogue between materials, echoes of my own personal experience, and the emotions connected to those experiences.
Working from memories and the mind's eye, dreams and emotions inspire my processes and provide a basis for portraits, figures and landscapes.
I think that ultimately, I paint to please myself. Painting, for me, is a means by which I find personal peace and self-actualization. Painting is a therapeutic vehicle by which one's own stories can be told.
