Andy Tolhurst
at Antoinette Godkin
4 Mar 2010 - 2 Apr 2010

Added by Vav God Tolhurst deals in intensely refined representations of what it is to be human in a commercialised consumer age. Meticulously hand crafted using progressive new techniques; his ‘paintings’ polish down consumerism and identity to their essence. The captivating familiarity felt when viewing this work is at first enjoyable, but the strange nostalgia Tolhurst creates in his viewer is in conversation with devastatingly industrial aesthetics. Andy’s sterile work is a disturbing reminder of how deeply branding infiltrates our consciousness and emotional responses. His dedicated practice is one of isolating recognition and distilling visual cues in subtle social commentary. -S Hargis
