The paintings by Andrew Wykes are rooted in the landscape tradition of England. A student of historical paintings with proper emphasis on painters such as, William Coldstream, and his contemporaries, Patrick George and Euan Uglow from the Slade School in London, England.


Wykes describes the construction of his visual history as, “hazy memories, often lodged deep in my unconscious, and at best, I have only vague ideas about their sources.”


Bypassing scientific, architectural, abstract rationales created from his careful measurement of the land, he uses the application of color, paint and linear webbing to wrestle with his internal knowing that, “nothing proceeds from itself. Nothing is given. All is constructed.(1)
