Andrew’s photographs document Chicago neighborhoods as well as small towns like East Chicago, Indiana and Andrew’s hometown of Fairport, NY.
An intuitive awareness of space and time permeate Andrew’s work in his current exhibit, Wide Awake Dreaming. In the image “Hollywood Beach” we see two young women walking along a beach – observed but unaware of being observed. The figures draw us into what becomes a complex abstract landscape. Two round planters to their immediate right echo an hourglass shape in negative space while they (because there is some weight of personality to them) stand apart – perhaps watching the watcher.
A kaleidoscope of high contrast vertical lines lure us deeper into the beach; or desert as there is no respite in an ocean view, only hot sand and canvas. Just when we can’t see a way out of this maze of lines and shapes, a flit of spontaneous whimsy appears in the sliver of sky just visible – a single person dangling from a large coasting balloon…
