    The Insider Adriana Marques says:

    "Andrew's obsession with materials shines through in these rough and honest paintings. Their simplicity make them profound and solid, returning us to the early days of painting, when simple marks could communicate with so much feeling."

  • writings (xii)

    One of a series of 12 paintings using cement on paper where much of the 'drawing' appears with the application of the cement. The surface area is modulated with thin or thick washes of varnish or acrylic before lettermarks and numbers are drawn. Imperfections are expected in the process, and the artist's decisions along the way reflect the nature of change and choice.

    Andrew Crane

    Andrew Crane was working on an oil painting when he stumbled across a bag of cement. It was one of those accidental discoveries that changes your whole direction. He was working in a borrowed warehouse at the time. Under pressure to complete work, he spotted a bag of tile cement on the floor, mixed it up with some PVA, and slapped it on the canvas. The resulting surface took oil paint extremely well. Crane became excited by the surface imperfections. Since then, he's become an explorer of unconventional materials, experimenting with everything from brown paper tape to black varnish.
