Andrew Tozer: A Beautiful Life

'A Beautiful Life' by Andrew Tozer explores moments witnessed around Cornwall; inspired by spontaneous days spent in familiar locations as well as exploring new and sought inspiration much closer to home, his garden. The collection features paintings full of flowers and signs of the new season while his wife is hanging out the washing - epitomizing finding beauty in the every day, which feels particularly poignant at this time.

In his 21st year of representation at Beside The Wave gallery, this Spring 2020 collection celebrates seeing the beauty in nature, whether that be a sunlit landscape, Spring blossom or a child's smiling face.

This collection of paintings once again shows Andrew's unyielding passion for his craft and the astounding way he can create a body of work which fills in the gaps within the places which we as the viewer can feel, see and imagine through the mark making and colours of his work.

We were luck enough to accompany Andrew whilst he practiced this joy, getting outside and painting in one of his favourite locations in Cornwall, the Helford, whilst painting 'Warm Sunshine, Helford Passage', discussing inspirations and techniques.

I like to think of my work as quite simple, but simple in a sense. Some days I plan to go out and paint, other times, it'll be spontaneous which can sometimes be when I do some of my best work.

That's how I work, I respond to things, so that's why the easiest way for me to work is to find something that's got a wow factor and I have to get it down because it's an emotional response. That might be the clouds amongst the trees, the silvery light, or you might find is very typical of the season.


I continue to try different methods to see what works, but I find it a lot easier to finish the paintings outside. Working outside in the moment, you have a lot more energy and you know the weather might change any minute, so you just get on with it. You don't procrastinate as much. The impetus makes you do it, which generally makes the outcome better." Andrew Tozer, March 2020.
