Rich color. High intensity. You are about to enter the inner sanctum of Andrews Art World.

Grab yourself an alien lover and browse the gallery.

Alien Love

Alien Love

Alien Love becomes a means of describing for my own sexuality and reflects LGBTQ rights and freedoms. 

The race of alien beings are depicted along with an alien language, Ackerman code, a mix of numbers, words, and symbols. 

The backgrounds, painted in black and white, represent boundaries between the individual and society. 

Brightly painted characters in symbolize personal freedoms and expressions. 

The white and black labels float as reminders of social adherence and personal preference. 

 

The story of of Alien Love:

Dejected from their home world, they leave for outer space.

Here, they make alien love in their cosmic bubbles. 

Perhaps, one day their fellow planet dwellers will let them come home.

Until then, they remain are in blissful unions of love far above their world.

Alien Architecture Paintings

We enter through grids, frames, chambers, windows, and doorways.

Mysterious creatures dwell inside alien domains.

Erotic Ferrets. Feminine Machine. A place to lay your crimson heart down.

This is where otherworldly events  take shape.

Enter the architecture and see for yourself.

Layered Paintings 

Layered marks, lines and shapes inside abstracted habits. A blending and tangling of shape and color. Some get lost in confusion.

Other shapes find their place.

Layered

Scratch Strata Paintings 

Pockets of furious color. All dancing in a flurry. Scratched from start to finish by human hands. Along with the support of brush and palette knife.

Swamp

Green Swamp
Swamp

Swamp evolves from small scale paintings. Several pieces were created under a magnification lens by making incisions with palette knives and nails into the surface of canvas and board. The series culminates in a larger work. Layer upon layer of line and mark form a dense texture culture. Vibrant abstract filled habitats appear like swamp confetti.  Enter the misty swamp lands and beyond. 

Illuminated Code

Studies of  the scripts of many cultures spawned a code language of its own. The further refinement of  Ackerman Code.
