AboutAgnew's Gallery is delighted to announce its fifth exhibition of the work of Andrew Gadd, The Day Begins. The exhibition sees Gadd further developing his themes of isolation and social brutality, yet it also presents an exploration of new subject matter.
Several Cubist-inspired meditations on cityscapes and abstract concepts reflect Gadd's engagement with a very different pictorial language, and represent a significant stylistic departure for the artist.
These new themes, however, inhabit paintings that are still strongly characteristic of Gadd's wider body of work; inspired by memory, imagination and the subconscious, they draw the viewer into a world of magical yet troubling narrative.
The Day Begins illuminates Gadd's foray into the intangible world, and reveals his enduring tendency to reject simple explanations in favour of spellbinding questions or uncertainties.
