30 ARTIST PROFILE Andrea Shearing

H2O Solo Exhibition Arts Depot London

Andrea Shearing


he force and strength of nature in both moments of calm and turbulence is explored in Andrea Shearing’s sea and rock paintings, where the movement of the ocean waves is mirrored through line and form. Her highly detailed and carefully considered compositions and colour palettes move beyond representation, delving into the emotional symbolism of her subject matter. Recently the artist has been developing her work as a series of 3D paintings, creating structures which sit on specially designed plinths, allowing them to be seen at specific heights and perspectives. These hanging paintings, 3D floor paintings and irregularly shaped works challenge the traditions of painting while

considering the opportunity to place paintings in different parts of an environment. Shearing trained at Eastbourne Art School and Edinburgh College of Art in Fine Art, going on to write and illustrate over 100 books, games and puzzles for which she has received over 20 international awards. After working to commission for public arts projects, she returned to her roots as a fine artist, exhibiting in group and solo shows across the world. This autumn her latest solo show, ‘H2O’ will open in London, with 70 new waterinspired works, while new pieces on the theme of ‘Pathways’ will be exhibited in a solo exhibition in Santagio de Compestella, Spain.
