Hurvin Andersen, Untitled (Black Street), 2000, oil on canvas, 150 x 239 cm
Hurvin Anderson draws from his heritage as second generation Jamaican-British; the subjects of his paintings are developed from both of these cultures, overlapping his parents’ generation’s experiences with his own. This sense of something familiar yet detached is conveyed through his canvases in their dislocated sense of place and hazy interpretation of detail. Anderson works from photographs rather than actual memory, a process which further enhances his aesthetic of distance. He shows with the Thomas Dane Gallery. For more information click here.
