In this Simon Andrew landscape, a big blue sky dominates the country scene as the moon rises over a lake in the distance. The painter’s gestural brushstrokes are highlighted by his choice of colours; a variety of rich blues, soft greens and browns that subtlety define the line between earth and sky. Andrew graduated with his MFA from Newcastle University in northeast England. He has exhibited widely with 27 solo shows in the UK and Canada. Andrew has received two Ontario Arts Council awards and won landscape competitions including the Laing National Landscape Competition and the Lawrence Atwell Award both in the UK. His work is in corporate, public and private collections including that of actor Mel Gibson and Queen Elizabeth. His work was featured on the cover of the Canadian band The Tragically Hip. Unframed.
