Sea Of Forgotten Dreams
For this set of paintings I tried an alternative approach that led to a totally new set of painting direction. I started working on smaller focused surfaces. The creative process begins with compositions of different set of colours based on the emotions and feelings of the day. Colours are expansive and push outward in all directions, or their surfaces contract and rush inward in all directions. Expressing human emotions, hopes and dreams.
Totally led by inspirations generated from the emotions, sounds and colour fields in my mind, I then translated these onto the canvasses via energetic air blown colour blends, bold splashes of paints, interspersed with sudden burst of colours, all working together in a rhythmic flow which sometimes seem to carry on indefinitely beyond the confines of the canvasses.
Oftentimes, meditation on sounds, thoughts and feelings will inspire a sudden burst of creative energy and this is evident on some pieces where you see focused areas of 'activities' on the canvasses. As apparent in my works, bright colours are used sporadically with darker colours or vice-versa to depict a dramatic effect on the paintings that reflects some of my personality.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Andy has also been fervently experimenting with different mediums in his work since year 2000. The visual impact of his works are derived from his expressive techniques of mixing mediums and clashing colours. Sometimes, they also escape the formal confines of the canvas and extend onto the frames, highlighting the capriciousness of his thought process.
Heavily influenced by music, nature and its landscapes, his need for exploring his personal style and interest in unexpected juxtapositions has led Andy to push his craft progressively, a trait he has come to be well-known for.
