About Andrew Watson

About the artwork

As is the case in many of Watson’s works, this grand, still life painting focuses on the nature of routine and prosaic tasks. On several occasions Watson filmed himself chopping fruit and vegetables in preparation for a meal, enjoying the therapeutic nature of such a simple task. Watson chose to paint from this still from the footage, owing to its colourful and vibrant presence owing to the close up camera angle, and the contrast of the hand and knife - what he believes bear similarities to the cause and affect of the act of painting. Watson says "The hands, lemon, chorizo, aubergines, carrots and bananas gave me a wide range of colours to play with, allowing me to really loosen up the painting from its original appearance, both structurally and tonally. It also reminded me of those close-up cinematic shots you often get of people preparing a meal and going about their day, a typical scene from which to begin a narrative. Something as simple as this allows the viewer to bring their own thoughts, stories and feelings into the work. "
