Andrew Keenleyside is a Painter/Printmaker who lives and works in Harpenden. His main subject matter is the local landscape and the changing seasons and how these affect the colours and moods of a particular view or composition. Andrew’s painterly and textural approach is evident in the surface details of his canvases. He reflects: “I try to capture the essence of a landscape by using vibrant and exaggerated colour combinations.” Andrew is also a printmaker and for this particular exhibition he has produced a number of ‘Solar-Plate’ etchings, inspired by local views of Harpenden. He states: ‘I enjoy the element of chance in the intaglio printing process, as well as the ability to reproduce an image more than once.’ He has had a series of one-man shows in London and the home counties. His work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts in London and is also represented in private collections in the USA, the Far East, South Africa and Europe.
