Andrew Conway-Hyde Isle of Wight Gallery

Andrew Conway-Hyde for sale. His minimal approach to painting and photography through an expansive yet controlled use of colour, brush and medium. Working in pigment, acrylic, and oil paint, Conway-Hyde interrogates the fundamentals of painting and photography, veering from epic and luscious compositions of wave forms (such as Summer, 2017) to pared-down and muted abstractions in precisely blended tones and colour. Structured according to the harmonic relationships between these hues (included in the titles, such as The big Wave, 2021), the paintings manifest as parallel and stacked strata, their wave exploring suggestions of seascapes and atmosphere through the viscosity of oil or acrylic. Albeit with the occasional intervention of chance, moments of happenstance through movement and the unexpected whorl of chaos, this process of repeated, sweeping gestures has been honed over the years since Conway-Hyde research in the Ashmolean at Oxford in the late 1990s and early 2000’s.

Artist & Photographer

“Abstract art and reductionism give us the ability to look deeper, to see within the mind what we cannot see physically with our own eyes. Abstract art enables us to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite from the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into the unknown areas of our consciousness and inner awareness.” - Andrew Conway-Hyde
