Andrew Bick Mar 29 – May 17 2014 von Bartha, Basel, Showroom
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.
