The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to present this new publication celebrating the practice of Walsall artist Andrew Tift.
This lavishly illustrated publication brings together brand-new work combined with selected works from the artist’s past practice, comprising paintings, drawings, photography and sketchbooks.
Focusing around the genre of portraiture, it testifies to the richness and breadth of the artist’s practice and includes commissioned portraits, personal projects with specifically chosen sitters and more experimental work in which the artist has challenged himself both technically and conceptually, pushing the boundaries of portraiture and reflecting on enduring themes such as the cycles of life, presence and absence, the passing of time and the persistence of memory.
Includes a fascinating and insightful essay by Charlotte Mullins.
Published on occasion of the exhibition Andrew Tift: Immortalise, 25 May – 2 Sep 2018, The New Art Gallery Walsall.
