TohuBohu is the first solo exhibition by the Belgian artist Amber Andrews
I’m not a storyteller. Rather, it adjusts to the contours of a story. The explanatory power of my works remain painterly by nature. I touch upon the same issues literary of perspective, protagonists or techniques, but always in a painterly way. Narratives have always been the breeding ground for painting. I paint the images someone else would narrate. I’m referring to mythology or, for example, Renaissance art because these things move me personally. I’ll start with a well-structured and clear-cut study, which leads to a collection of images. An inventory of words and graphics, which eventually take their shape on canvas."
