Andrea Tyrimos’s work is concerned with the phenomena of artificial light, coupled with the issue of electronic reproduction. The paintings originate from a personal photographic material, with the images often taken from relatively low resolution mobile phones and cameras.
The paintings represent a nocturnal narrative flow. Some of the pieces are concerned predominantly with giving artificial light physical substance, whilst others present a historical trajectory. Conscious of the phenomena, and depicting, and its relationship with modernism. Andrea Tyrimos is not simply painting reflections of ‘artificial light’, but is constantly engaged in representing a world which only exists as a result of man-made light.
Two of Andrea’s photographs were chosen to advertise the ‘Illumini’ and ‘Illumini Quantum exhibitions, 2008.
Andrea has also been mentioned in publications such as ‘Time Out’ and ‘a-n’ magazine, and has been featured in the Enfield ‘Advertiser’, ‘Independent’ and ‘Gazette’, among others.
