Andrew Tozer: Telling Stories

5th - 25th April 2019

Andrew Tozer: Telling Stories

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide

Now, of my threescore years and ten.
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.

And since to look at things in bloom,
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.

'Loveliest of Trees, the Cherry now', from AE Housman's, 'A Shropshire Lad'

"I have a very basic desire as an artist; I like to go to a certain place and make a picture about it. I consider myself a visual diarist and compare painting to telling stories; I want the viewer to feel what I felt when I painted it. This may explain my love of incredibly diverse artists, such as, Monet, Peter Lanyon, Bonnard, Fred Yates and John Virtue who may on the surface appear to be totally different, but they are all linked by the way they are able to transport me, as a viewer to a specific place and time.

I love the process of telling stories through painting so much that I am wholly elated when I have created a painting that I am happy with. I just want to go and do it again immediately. The process of making pictures outside can be extremely draining as so many senses are being stimulated, but this also produces the most interesting visual stories.

This collection is as honest and real as I could make it. In the words of the famous British artist, Walter Sickert, 'Every picture tells a story - if it doesn't, it ain't"- Andrew Tozer, March 2019.



This show 'Telling Stories' is a celebration of the seasons in Cornwall, the first works were produced last year in the glorious sunshine, and Andrew has been painting out in the landscape since. We have been lucky enough to have worked with Andrew for the last 20 years here at Beside The Wave. Within this collection, we can see a renewed passion and energy, culminating in a body of work featuring some of his best work to date.

The show is now open and we look forward to welcoming you to this prestigious artist's newest exhibition.
