Lookbacks & Laybacks by Andrew Wellman
June 15 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Deus Gallery is super excited to welcome Andrew Wellman back, their long time friend & family member will be ripping the veil off of his latest works in his solo show ‘LOOKBACKS & LAYBACKS’ He’s filling the Deus Gallery to overflowing with beautiful art pieces that pilot the magical moments of his ever so fervent mind.
Andrew paints what he loves and loves what he paints. With this show he takes us down tracks he’s already laid, but there are a whole host he’s cutting a fresh. He tip’s his hat to the 70’s and there’s more than a knowing nod to the passage of time. References to a life well(man) spent abound and feel like you’re at a looking glass peering in on what has honed his existence thus far.
This show is an ocular amalgamation of his favourite things. There’re the graphic elements he’s proud to salute with mouth widening double entendre and some serious scale. His typography is crystal clear in its obscurity and the words are fire starters to the imaginative mind. Oh of course he’s covered everything in liberal amounts of patina that is notable in the chockfull lushness of its graininess.
Two of Andrew’s favourite surfing manoeuvres of all time form the name of the show. But as with anything associated with Andrew, you know straight away that it can’t be taken at face value.
Feel free to stand and stare, but be sure to Lookback at least once and Layback twice.
