Oil on Canvas

Photographer: Andrew Stahl
Andrew Stahl’s paintings search for the Vivid, the Miraculous and Breton’s Marvellous and approach cultural differences and connections using pictorial language, imagination and figuration. The use of the paint carries the feeling and the work suggests the fragility of the image, the dissolving of the world, sadness and joy.
