“For me, painting is a celebration of a medium that is quite alive.┬á It continues to validate itself and it challenges today’s contemporary hierarchy by way of reflection.┬á Painting relives its alchemical past to its benefit and is constantly challenged by it. ” William Mathew Andrus
American artist William Mathew Andrus earned a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Kentucky in 2007 and has exhibited and taught at various locations in this area.┬á Relationships are key to both his painting process and the experience of his works.┬á He is inspired by the history of painting, particularly by Impressionism and Abstract Expressionism, and views his works within the context of previous movements.┬á He also speaks of the viewing experience as a “meditative dialogue” between artist and viewer.
