About Andrew Reid Wildman

 
 
  • Biography

    I started painting about 10 years ago. I am a self-taught artist. I now live in France, a country that excites and inspires me. My work is based on my photography. That is where I get my sense of realism from. I then create acrylic paintings which then assume a sense of naivety and joy. I enjoy painting this way, this is how I see and experience the world. I often paint urban scenes, usually at a time  of day when the city is quiet, when I can own it, be alone in it. I savour painting the walls and skies in vivid colour, the small details that make a building come alive for me. I also enjoy capturing humans in unexpected moments. I love watching come alive in my work. I am inspired by the urban environment, places of shadow and lurking danger and delight, of history and memory.

    Event: Landscape and Memory

    Dates: April 23, 2015 - May 22, 2015

    Venue: Landscape and Memory, Johnston Central Library Gallery Space

    One of our deepest needs is for a sense of identity, belonging and human attachment to landscape and how we find identity in landscape and place. Landscape therefore is not simply what we see, but a way of seeing. We see it with our eye but interpret it with our mind and ascribe values to landscape for intangible spiritual reasons. Landscape can therefore be seen as a cultural construct in which our sense of place and memories inhere.
    This group of artists gathered to talk in one shared language -as well as many tongues, on the matter of memory and landscape. Since the landscape changed in times for them, and as much as their eyes allowed, becoming their own. Many of them have come from other countries and cultures, adding to the personal voyage, the re- interpretation of the land by different experiences and tongues.
    The landscape then changes, subtly transformed by memory, acquiring multiple forms: abstract digitized photos to fine painting; children playing in bucolic gardens that the artist eye turns sinister, portraits disintegrate to pixels, the human body as a textual form and repository for memories, human impact on the land, stating what matters is the personal voyage, the unique experience under the set point Memory and Landscape.
    This exhibition is taking a step into the computer screen to bring the combined international artists together, into a ‘real’ space and ‘real’ artwork that we get a true sense of.
    Exhibiting artists include: Malgorzata Dawidek Gryglicka (Poland), Nikolas Lamplaos (Greece), Carly Zufelt (USA), Judith Mazzucco, (USA), Elena Feijoo (USA), Marilyn Gaffney (Ireland), Karen Esteves (USA), Madaline Walker (USA), Tomás Castaño (Spain), Sasha Romashko (Ukraine), Stuart Gibson (USA), Andrew Reid Wildman (Great Britain), Xiaohong Zhang (USA), Reyhaneh Afzalian Naini (Iran), Marta Miranda (Argentina), Yami (France), Klaus Pinter (Austria), Vera L.P. Cauwenberghs (Belgium), Rachel Lin Weaver (USA), Courtney A. Henderson (USA)
    Official Opening by Cathaoirleach Shane P. O’Reilly
    Welcome by Marta Miranda.
    Opening 23 April at 7pm.
    The exhibition runs until 22 May and takes place during the Bealtaine Festival 2015.
