Andrew Hostick

In a paradoxical world of access and inaccessibility, Hostick utilizes observation to appropriate and paraphrase advertisements from various art magazines. Endorsements in Art in America or Artforum unfettered by content allow Andrew to focus on the image’s organization of objects and hue, allowing him to, via emulation, practice sophisticated use of composition and color theory. Choosing to work only with colored pencil on mat board, heavy-handed mark making inscribes the surface and builds up a velvety sheen. He works and reworks the entire surface (even white on white) with nonpareil intensity. The resulting pieces are a beautiful collapse of primitive and contemporary sensibilities, as the appropriated qualities have operated to create a new and different piece. Being a marginalized and self-taught artist, this ironic conceptual twist comments directly on Andrew’s access and inaccessibility to the Art World. 


Hostick has exhibited work in group exhibitions including The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft in Louisville, KY, The Carnegie in Covington, KY, EXPO Chicago 2015, and the Outsider Art Fair in New York.
