Three Hundred and Sixty-Five Pictures were hand-rendered images derived from photographs. Their cumulative effect of authenticity may be traced to the camera’s legacy of truth-telling, and to the autographic mark associated with painting.
At times resembling digital printout (Sonnets) and, at others, faded yearbook vignettes (Fingerprints), Andrews’s likenesses evoked both a web of remembered relationships and the search for new ones, as exemplified by the classified “personal” ad.
Stephen Andrews is a Toronto-based artist of international reputation. The exhibition was accompanied by an illustrated brochure.
