Andy Harper:

Born 1971 UK, Andy Harper lives and works in St. Just and St. Ives. Graduated from BA Fine Art at Brighton Polytechnic (1993); MA Fine Art: Painting at the Royal College of Art (1995); and MA Visual Culture at Middlesex University (1999).

Harper’s work is drawn by an almost overwhelming abundance of resources. To engage with his paintings means to enter a whole new world on its own terms. References from botany, flora, Victorian and primordial motifs as well as powerful colours and abstract arrangements stimulate our senses and imagination.

His works are held in public and private collections including The United Kingdom Government Art Collection; Lodeveans Collection, London; Collection of Public Works, Irish Government collection; Fidelity Investments, London; Pigozzi Collection; J Sainsbury plc; and Accenture plc.
