Andy Baxter art exhibition opens at Freedom Hairdressing

Andy Baxter art exhibition opens at Freedom HairdressingIn the last few month Freedom Hairdressing in Dock Street has lent its walls to local artists allowing them to display and sell their work. This month Freedom will feature the work of Andy Baxter, an architect with Nicoll Russell studios in Broughty Ferry who reveals another side to his artistic talent. The Dundee Channel were at the opening on Friday where after an emotional opening speech from Andy we interviewed Andy about his work and the exhibition.

In 2009 Andy started life drawing classes and his interest in traditional art was rekindled since then he has drawn and painted prolifically and when given the opportunity loves to work with clay to produce figurative sculptures and portraits
“I am fascinated by the human form and how subtle differences in bone structure and hair and skin colour can transform an individual’s appearance capturing these subtleties in always my aim, I endeavour to go further and try to capture the essence of the subject by looking beyond the physical and trying to capture their ethereal characteristic .
I have recently started to explore digital world and its potential as an alternative to traditional media, using Ipad I have created “paintings” which emulate traditional media techniques but exploit the vast resources of the digital tool box” My results are a work in progress and my journey will be recorded on my web site at www.andybaxter.com
anticipated to go public following this exhibition.
