Andrew Banks @abcolourful Statement about my work

My paintings and digital works, main inspiration is colour within the landscape, through natural and un-natural light.

My work always has an element of fiction in terms of an idealised scene through editing a found photograph as a starting point, reducing elements along with combining other images to create a new scene. Some of the works can are inspired by myths and legends and elements are included in my work. The Act series of works are also inspired by musical theatre and film, generally creating open narrative painting.

The Act series (ongoing series)
