ANDREW SQUIRE Thompson’s Gallery London is delighted to announce a new solo exhibition by Andrew Squire. The gallery has a well established relationship with the artist and we are excited to be presenting his latest paintings. A recurrent theme of Andrew Squire’s work has been an artistic enquiry into the boundaries of the tangible world and that which lies beyond. Squire uses a visual language of isolated iconic imagery, neatly positioned within brightly painted abstracted backgrounds that hint at the subject’s origin. His enigmatic icons of birds, beasts and human myth become thoughtful and disarming reflections on what links us and separates us as a species, underpinned by a deeply felt environmental concern. Andrew Squire’s new collection of work combines intensely coloured images with calmer, more subdued pieces. Squire, who is known for painting environments through bold, expressive colours, shows oriental influences in his new body of work. Elegant simplicity and the occasional introduction of calligraphic text mark his latest output. Squire’s paintings are deceptively simple and have eclectic roots. Not only do they draw on his own environmental beliefs, they also reflect the artist’s personal experiences and memories gained whilst travelling and exhibiting throughout the world - with residencies in Iceland, Canada and Nepal to name a few. These experiences have fed into his development of a wide-ranging painterly language that reflects the complexity of human perceptions. Drawing variously on the elemental space and light of Western Scotland, as well as the inner landscape of the subconscious, Squire’s characteristically minimalistic compositions continue to use accessible, contemporary images to evoke their symbolic language.

Sky Door Oil on canvas 12 x 12 inches

Beautifully composed and making confident use of the visual silence of empty space, there is a recurring contemplative quality and stillness in the work which reaches past the here and now to something beyond.
