Andy Dobbie is an Anglesey-based artist who paints and draws a range of subjects in acrylics, oils, charcoal and pencil. Having worked in Manufacturing and IT for many years, Andy left to become a full time artist in May 2017. His focus is on exploring how we portray and perceive objects and spaces in the paint. More recently, inspired by Josef Albers book, ‘Interaction of Color’, he has been using flat planes of colour to try and emphasise both the flatness of the painting surface as well as the depth of the scenes portrayed. Andy has exhibited in several group shows, including the Kyffin Williams Drawing Prize exhibitions in 2012 and 2018. He takes inspiration from artists of all eras and movements, but especially from post-impressionism onwards and, particularly, from Cubism, which, he feels, still has more to offer figurative artists in the digital age.
