Andrew Hardwick is a Bristol based artist and a Royal West of England Academician. His studio is based on a farm where the River Severn turns into the sea; a landscape surrounded by industry and new housing estates. Hardwick’s paintings give us a narrative of this landscape which he recalls from childhood explorations and adult observation, communicated to the viewer through layers of board, canvas, netting, wire and various paints supported by battens, which offer a purposely warped structure to the work which is not confined by the rectangle format.

His works protrude and recess, creating an undulating surface with gouged out negative spaces and artefacts embedded in the surface. Through his paintings Hardwick aims to give the viewer an experience of the landscape, to evoke emotion and a tangible reality in its raw form. His large-scale diptychs and triptychs will draw you away from the white space of the gallery wall and into their complex surfaces and layers.

Each year the Atkinson Gallery requests nominations of postgraduate student work from university tutors across the UK. Each university can nominate up to 5 students whom they believe represent the highest quality and standards in their personal artistic practice.

Works entered can be from a variety of media which makes the MA and Other Postgraduates exhibition a must-see contemporary collection of painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, textiles, and multimedia.

Entry forms will be available from the end of September on the Atkinson Gallery website. Universities who have previously entered will be contacted automatically.
