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.
