ANDREW FAULKNER
Andy’s work explores a lifelong fascination with the landscape of Wales and its historic buildings and structures, particularly those which are derelict, in decline or under threat. He is drawn to abandonment and decay, how structures undergo transformation as they deteriorate, and how vegetation regains a foothold in an ongoing battle between human activity and the forces nature – perhaps a snapshot of humanity’s broader relationship with the natural world. His work strives to embody and convey the excitement of visiting these dramatic and transitory places. Dramatic and exciting landscapes also provide subject matter from time to time. Media are selected carefully to suit each subject, typically mixing painting and drawing techniques to create a combination of ‘free’ expressive marks with more controlled drawing. Andy’s artwork compliments his established career as a historic buildings architect, working on historic buildings of all types and scales, as director of his own practice, Andrew Faulkner Associates Ltd. He has taught sketching and perspective drawing workshops for architectural students and craft fellows and enjoys opportunities for engagement and collaboration with other artists.
