Attracted to both the beauty and the sadness of an inner city landscape, Andy Insh's paintings present us with an internal view of the city. The powerfully charged atmosphere of South London, usually so crowded with urban life and inner city turmoil is replaced with a sense of beauty, aloneness, silence, and solitude. It is here within the vacant depiction of empty spaces and silent streets that the power of his Andy Insh's paintings really lays. Insh was born in 1956 and from 1984 to 1988 studied at the Camberwell College of Art and subsequently Middlesex polytechnic, where he completed his Art Foundation and BA in Visual Arts. At the age of fifty Insh has already exhibited his work in over forty exhibitions in galleries across London, the UK and in Berlin where he has work in private collections.
