Andrew Vickery

New Scenes

7 - 30 July 2011

Following on from a successful preview of his work at SCOPE Basel 11 art fair in Switzerland Peppercanister is delighted to hold its second solo show by Andrew Vickery.

True to form Vickery’s new exhibition of work contains 20 paintings that are small in scale and have both appeal and charm. They portray a visual diary with a childlike quality that belies adult themes and interests of nature, culture, sex and traveling. They act as theatrical scenes that convey both memory and experience. First a train station, then train platforms, a passing city, then countryside. Places visited and arriving at a destination are recurring elements of Vickery’s narrative. They are conceptual, playful, beautifully colourful works that engage the viewer and allow for their own interpretation as we are reminded of places we have been and of the road that lies ahead. The exhibition will be opened by Sean Kissane, Head of Exhibitions at the Irish Museum of Modern Art and will continue until the end of the month.
