More exciting work in the studio

Updated: Dec 15, 2023

In the studio, I am beginning to make some new drawings - paintings for the West Down Gallery, Winchester, in the UK. They are for a solo exhibition that will begin later this year, in October 2023. Starting themes for the work are circadian rhythm, sleep, vitamin D, and the microbiome.

The work I have begun is in a number of formats, but I have begun to get excited as to where work in the below format, within the multiple plastic pockets, might go. The idea of slotting work in moving, and layering it, is rather appealing.

I am always looking for exhibiting possibilities, if you can suggest anything do contact me at:

Andrew Carnie is an internationally exhibiting contemporary visual artist practicing in the UK. His main concerns focus on the interface of art and science, often working in collaboration with scientists, though not exclusively. His approach is media agnostic, using methodologies and media as informed by the context, concepts, and concerns. Large-scale installations and environments are a key part of his practice, exploring subjects such as heart transplants, metabolism, and neurological conditions – these immersive works engage audiences in how we see ourselves through the world of science.

Drawing, painting, and sculpting have an enduring place in his practice, but video, projection, and installation are his primary strengths. He creates environments that are endlessly fascinating around subjects, like heart transplants, metabolism, and neurological conditions that intrigue him, and audiences become caught up in these transformative works.

His work has been exhibited at the Science Museum, London, Natural History Museum, Rotterdam, Design Museum, Zurich, Exit Art, in New York, Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, Great North Museum, Newcastle, Pera Museum, Istanbul, Dresden Hygiene Museum, Morevska Gallery, Brno, and the Daejeon Museum of Art, South Korea, the Hatton Gallery and Vane, Newcastle, the Anatomy Museum in Riga, the Kunsthal Charlotteborg, København, Danmark, amongst many others, and most recently in the exhibition Brain(s) at the CCCB Barcelona, and the Espacio Fundación Telefónica, Madrid, Spain
