Andrew’s work walks the line between chaos and order
-Jana Liptak
It’s NOT spin art…it is Revolution Art.
Centrifugal force beams arms and legs, reaching with random movement.
Alive with electricity and fire, streaming with feathery vibrancy and a hypnotic fulmination.
Since a very young age Andrew Wallach was ALWAYS sketching, drawing and painting.
In high school, he attended E.C.A. (the Educational Center for the Arts) in New Haven, CT.
Most of Andrew’s work seemed to provoke some type of shock value, and he seemed to enjoy the reaction from the viewers.
After Graduation in 1986, Andrew was accepted to Dean Jr. College and majored in Art. Not having the patience for the strict rudimentary lessons, Andrew dropped out after the first year and his creative spirit waned.
Not until 1997 would Andrew’s creative spark be lit again in the form of photography. Andrew began photographing professional in 2000 with numerous accolades, exhibits and many satisfied clients. Though between 2010 and 2012 Andrew noticed a slow decline in photography work.
In July of 2012, Andrew’s creative mind was overflowing, and he decided to change artistic direction in the way of abstract painting. With much trial and error, and much exuberance, Andrew put together an operating studio in one of the garage bays at home.
In late August of 2012 Andrew began “dropping paint” as he calls it, on any surface he could find, mat board, plywood, masonite board etc. Secured to a large table, manually spinning for best control of centrifugal force. Moving to larger professional canvases Andrew quickly began creating large gallery pieces with much excitement.
Calling this project “the Spinning Head Project”, he says “it’s like reinventing the wheel” though not a completely original idea, he goes on to say “it’s NOT spin art, it’s ….REVOLUTION ART”.
Andrew’s paintings seem to evoke the imagination of the viewer, they convey movement and force the eye to look deeper into the painting, a type of hypnotic fulmination.
“Andrew’s work walks the line between chaos and order, he sets up the perimeters yet he controls the results to a certain point. So much depends on chance and a host of variables(temperature, viscosity and chemical reaction etc.). there’s a performance to creating his paintings and they continue to change and evolve(and grow) even after the performance is over.” – Jana Liptak
