Crane's background is in graphics and typography. Much of his work uses letters and numbers which serve as 'characters' or clues to the motivation behind a painting. There is often a mystical or spiritual element to his work. Crane invariably employs materials gathered from the hardware store…Show more rather than the art shop — the muted tones of cement or plaster combine with soft washes of varnish creating powerful and highly original abstract expressionist works.
Crane lives and works in Northumberland. His work has been exhibited internationally and across the UK in solo and group shows. He is a member of Contemporary British Painting group.Show less
"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."
