Andrew Vickery in Business & Finance

English-born Dublin-based artist Andrew Vickery has his first one-person exhibition at the Peppercannister Gallery from August 27th to September 12th. Charming, initially appealingly naïve but slightly sinister, these paintings are people-free stage sets or cinema shots waiting for a narrative. Painted from memory in gouache on canvas, themes which recur in Vickery's work include nature, culture, sex and travel, and he describes the work as "a threshold to another reality: a world of enchantment, romance, sex and escape." Peppercanister Gallery, 3 Herbert Street, Dublin 2.
