Andrew Dadson is widely known for his extensive experiments with abstraction and space. He seeks to explore the possibility of overcoming perceived challenges of physical and natural space, translating this into his work while stretching the boundaries beyond the immediate and conventional way one looks at things.


„To be titled is part of a new series of paintings where I am using a palette knife to apply paint to the canvas and build up many small "waves" of paint or "ripples". It is a fairly labour intensive technique, but it is quite meditative and I'm enjoying the way the painting reveals itself over time. There is a final dark coat over the bright underpainting, having it glow through.“

(Andrew Dadson, 2021)
