Andrew Hostick works from observation to paraphrase advertisements from various art magazines. Endorsements inArt in America or Artforum unfettered by content allow Andrew to focus on the image’s organization of objects and hue, allowing him to, via emulation, practice sophisticated use of composition and color theory. Choosing to work only with colored pencil on mat board, heavy-handed mark making inscribes the surface and builds up a velvety sheen. He works and reworks the entire surface (even white on white) with nonpareil intensity.
