South Parade has announced the representation of Andrew North (b.1989, UK), who lives and works in Leicestershire, UK.
Andrew North paints on a variety of surfaces encompassing themes of memory, time and place. Rural and urban landscapes, architecture, nature and sometimes figures are motifs that reoccur. His work shifts between moments of representation and abstraction in a painting practice that involves the entirety of picture-making from stretcher construction to framing. Often overpainted, cropped, punctured or texturised, the pictures probe the foundations of easel painting. Fading and transitory, the works arise from a recorded experience of the world we inhabit, conjuring up new formations on the canvas through a combination of the observed and the act of painting.
Andrew North (b. 1989) lives and works in Leicestershire. After completing his BFA at The Glasgow School of Art, North went on to study at The University of Cambridge and The Royal Drawing School. Recent selected exhibitions include Surfacing, South Parade (London, 2023), The Room, South Parade (London, 2022), Kill or Cure, Wolfson College (Cambridge, 2022), Between Shan Shui, 1974 Club (London, 2022), A Moment or Two, The Bothy Gallery (Cirencester, 2021) and Dibujando y Pintando, 48 Calle Iturribide (Bilbao, 2018). Since 2021, North has been a Visiting Lecturer at Nottingham Trent University.
