Andy Briggs

Andy Briggs is a London based artist, who studied Fine Art (Painting) at Chelsea College of Art. Andy's work centres around a process of overlaying areas of spray paint, masked by stencils. The paintings themselves develop in unknown ways as each layer is added, allowing the images to develop, piece by piece. The resulting images ' . . . appear like a ghost of something strangely familiar, exposing our automatic reflex to rationalise abstraction and to see it as a representation of a known thing'. Resembling photographic prints, the paintings become a playful parody of how they resemble abstract paintings, showing us how abstraction has become a model for photography, whish is then relocated back into painting via the spray gun. Andy has exhibited widely in London and the UK, Germany and Hong Kong.
