Andrew Dalton is fascinated by black and white. In print, painting and drawing he uses black, and its gradations to white, as the vehicle through which he expresses himself. Whether figurative or abstract, his imagery represents a personal narrative; a distillation of moments that represent experience. A dragonfly, bird or figure can represent itself or a memory of an event, place or time. He tries to create arresting images that offer the viewer significant but ambiguous forms to consider and fill with their own meaning.
Andrew trained in Fine Art Printmaking at Central St Martins under Mike Peel, David Gluck, Norman Ackroyd, Sharon Avialotis and Tony Martina. This environment encouraged his interest in monochrome, black and white, intaglio and relief printing.
Since 2010 he has been researching new approaches to his print practice using vinyl lino. This process is very flexible and composite images can be created quickly, retaining a sense of immediacy whilst articulating the medium.
Andrew is currently developing a small print workshop in Thirsk, North Yorkshire.
