b. 1963 in Coleford, England / Lives and works in London, England
Andrew Bick attended the Cheltenham College of Art (Foundation Studies) from 1980–81 and studied painting from 1982–86 at the University of Reading, Department of Fine Arts (BA Hons. Painting). In 1988 he finished his studies with an MA in painting at the Chelsea School of Art in London. His multi-layered wax paintings use various shapes in free and geometric abstraction. Numerous opposites such as drawing and painting, transparency and opaqueness, line and plane, colour and non-colour as well as glossy and matt surfaces come together in multi-faceted and inscrutable whole. The layered wooden picture ground is often wrapped in plexiglass, so that the structure of the picture filters through and thus reinforces its sculptural and architectural composition. In 2017 Andrew Bick had a major solo exhibition at Haus Konstruktiv in Zurich.
