Andrew Churchill is a Sussex based artist, he studied art at Bath University, having gained his foundation at University of Creative Arts, Farnham.
He has exhibited his work throughout the UK since 1996, including most recently the Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize at Piano Nobile (2019 & 2021), 'Differently the Same' at Winemakers, Dalston (2021) and 'Tree of Life', a group show at Electro Studios, St Leonards on Sea.
Andrew Churchill's artist references are wide and varied. His heroes are Alberto Giacometti and Frank Auerbach, as much for their work ethic and dedication to a subject as for their paintings. You can see evidence of both in his paintings, brush marks and use of paint.
His paintings are deeply personal, he says "I paint what cannot be said" continuing "Every object and colour and composition is in some way symbolic, although I am perfectly happy to be the only one who knows what and why!".
A large part of Andrew Churchill's output is self portrait, still life and interiors, often with repeated motifs (circles/curves), colour palette (bold almost clashing) and artist references (Van Gogh flowers). Playing with a flattened perspective, which moved beyond flat to curved, he intends his paintings to reflect closely the actual act of looking.
His work is in private collections in the UK, Australia, Belgium, France, Ireland, Norway, Spain and the USA.
