Throughout his life Andrew Gibson has worked mainly with people and posters. He’s spent time in the NHS mental health services, supporting the recovery of people through making and sharing art, and he’s worked in street advertising, driving around London when the day turns to night and back again. He’s obsessed with making art that nurtures the inner spark of light – that uses paint and junk and light to remind us that, given the right conditions and time, everything and everyone is a jewel.
The work in this exhibition is painted mostly on objects that I’ve salvaged from the streets and buildings of London. The image painted on each one relates in some way to its original purpose, breathing light back into it as an artwork and allowing it to shine on.
