A West Yorkshire artist takes a different look at the Yorkshire landscape

Andy Fullalove first painted with oils at the age of 10 aiming high with his version of Sunflowers by Van Gogh. His grandfather had died leaving him his paints and brushes not knowing that this would spark a new vocation later in life. Painting became a passion from then on, says Andy, and developed with the opportunity to study at Huddersfield University as a mature student in Fine Art (BA Hons). He has exhibited regularly over the last decade and has painted full time for the last six years.

Andy lives with his family in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, where he also has his studio. He says that his work does not depict a view in the traditional sense of landscape painting; however, the initial spark starts there. Semi-abstract references from the Yorkshire landscape appear throughout his canvases.

The ritualistic and obsessive daily studio practice helps me to connect with the paint and the imagery, to achieve a much higher level of painting, says Andy. Commissions do come my way, the most recent being Humber Bridge, Hull. A recent York exhibition proved to be successful at Artspace Gallery, with more York shows planned in the near future.

His recent paintings are drawn from the moorland area around Holme Moss. Working on the emotional response of isolation, combined with the rawness of the moors has enabled me to produce a new body of work, entitled Light and Revelations, adds Andy. This exhibition can be seen until July 3rd at Helen J Bray Studio, 16-22 Dunford Road, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.
