Andy Sylvester Artist

Welcome to my site! 

As a painter of portraits, I am interested in the way that colour, line, mark and texture can be used to evoke an emotion within an image. My work often makes reference to art history, literature, classicism and symbolism to evoke a narrative, an emotion and an understanding of the personality or life experience of the sitter. 

All work is usually made using photographs, either taken at face to face sittings or through sharing of images.

Like what you see and wish to know more about my work or discuss commissioning a work, please get in touch? I will come back to you promptly.
