Artist's CV

Represented by nanda\hobbs

In appropriating the sublime and adopting familiar and vibrant imagery, I hope to tantalise and engage with a contemporary audienceperhaps in an unprecedented wayevoking their own cherished childhood memories, shared experiences and heart-stopping moments.

Andrew McIlroy belongs to a new wave of highly regarded Australian Romantic artists.  If his expressive seascapes with tumultuous seas and stormy skies were but elemental paintings, they could be viewed as outward-looking, non-sensual depictions of nature. However, there is something deeper going on: his paintings are evocative visions that are deeply felt and imbued with personal experiences.

McIlroy’s composition and palette capture the artist’s mood, whereby he evokes a strong sense of emotion, illuminating the ever-present forces of nature.
