Andrew May - Paintings


I'm really so happy to show you the paintings of Andrew May.
Andrew's works speaks to me so much, both as photographer and painter,
looking at his paintings you will understand why.
I fully agree to the Andrew's opinion about painting, released in a interview on 1STANGEL ARTS MAGAZINE, that in painting to express totally his own self to be emotionally and true, must be not a realistic as a photo. Trought his evolution, attracted by the force of the expression of the media , Andrew reach beautifull and powerfull thick "impasto", almost to strengthen the intention of the soul that comes out of the canvas.
Andrew May's paintings are introspective and autobiographical and not leave us indifferent.

Sono davvero molto felice di mostrarvi i dipinti di Andrew May.
Le opere di Andrew mi dicono cosí tanto, sia come fotografo che come pittore,
guardando i suoi quadri si capirà il perché.
Sono pienamente d'accordo sul parere di Andrew sulla pittura, pubblicato in un' intervista su 1STANGEL ART MAGAZIN e cioé che, in pittura per esprimere tutto il proprio essere emotivo in un modo vero e vivo, il dipinto non deve essere una fotografia.
Attraverso anni di evoluzione, attratto dalla forza di espressione dei colori visti come medio, Andrew raggiungere un "impasto" spesso e materico, quasi a rafforzare la volontà dell'anima che esce dalla tela.
I dipinti di Andrew May sono introspettivi e autobiografici e non ci lasciano indifferenti.




On the a13 heading north - Andrew May

"All a visual artist has to do is go out and look at the world, go and drink in as much new imagery as possible that the outside world can conjure. A blank canvas will still remain a blank canvas if you haven’t interacted with humanity". (From interview on 1STANGEL ARTS MAGAZINE)



"Tutto quello che un artista visivo che deve fare è uscire e guardare il mondo. Una tela bianca sarà ancora una tela bianca, se non si interagisce con l'umanità". (Dall'intervista su 1STANGEL Arts Magazine)

Paint of Andrew May

"It is not dissimilair to being in the possession of a mental photograph or a constructed image of scenery floating behind my closed eyes. You bring it onto what ever medium you choose and you have to never let it have a chance to shift its focus until its completion as you are drawing the work out of you". (From interwiew on 1STANGEL ARTS MAGAZINE)


"Non è diverso; di essere in possesso di un immagine mentale, che sia dipinto o fotografia. Dopo avere scelto il medio, lo si trasporta e non bisogna avere la possibilitá di spostare l'attenzione fino a quando non si ha finito, come essendo fuori da noi stessi". (Dall' intervista su 1STANGEL ARTS MAGAZINE)

Woman in a Window said...

Andrew's men seem to me today's man too close to the sun. Icarus in a suit, minus the wings. Minus a soul too, in many ways. Somnabulistic, they seem. Yes, wonderful work. A little frightening.

Elvi said...

Sono spettacolosi.Come puoi immaginare,
sono totalmente d'accordo su
quello che pensa Andrew della pittura. Ci sono le macchine fotografiche che rappresentano la realtà (e un fotografo bravo fa comunque arte), un artista deve dare
di più. Baci Elvi

Thank you for posting these. his photographs in the earlier post left me cold. These paintings on the other hand grab me by the heart and brain. They are frightening.
He is an artist after all. I apologise.

Poetic Artist said...

These paintings some how make me realize how much sadness is in this world and people just seem to not notice..Yet to me he captures this.

Powerful work, like intangibles pulled from the subconscious mind and given a material form - they are both like nothing you have ever seen and a true portrait of everything we have inside us! The one with the stairs leading up will stick in my mind all day! Many thanks for sharing this.

marty said...

c'est vrai, son travail ne laisse pas indifférent ! dans son article il parle d'un squat à Berlin ! s'il s'agit du TACHELES (mes posts du 8 et 12.9) je comprends qu'il ait pu y trouver l'inspiration !
son travail de peintre est si différent de ses photos ! l'expression de sentiments, d'émotions et d'états d'âme est très forte dans ses peintures, c'est ce que je ressens en tous les cas ! c'est un travail intéressant !
Bisous Laura et merci de cette
découverte !

Margherita said...

Laura concordo con te, il dipinto non deve essere una fotografia, né una poesia, ma deve suscitare quel che suscita una fotografia a una poesia. Deve emozionare e trasmettere. Ho osservato molto attentamente i dipinti e ho potuto percepire un dolore interiore del pittore, un qualcosa che anche io ho sentito quando dipingevo e sceglievo le stesse tinte di colore, scure, tetre, e i volti erano senza occhi, bocca e naso, a volte erano delle maschere grottesche, era il mio umore che parlava, il mio malessere interiore...
comunque a me sono piacciuti tantissimo.
Un abbraccio
Margy
