Andrew Hopkinsā€”Confabulations of the Orient

Preview Wednesday 25th May 6–8pm

Running until Saturday 28th May

Leaving the camera behind, I arrived in China quixotically armed with notepad and pen. Each scribble a recognition of heightened experience. Each painting a regurgitation of undigested experience.

Andrew Hopkins was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1991. Andrew’s preferred medium is paint, predominantly oil on canvas, with forays into acrylic, watercolour, household paint and a combination of the above. His opaque landscapes arise through the process of painting, anchored with lyrical particulars that play with the viewer’s sense of recognition. Andrew completed a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin in 2015. His work has featured in collaborative shows in Dublin with Four Floors Above, See the Future NCAD Graduate Show, the Boyle Arts Festival in Co. Roscommon and a solo show at Wicklow Arts Festival. He is currently living and working in Wicklow Town.
