Original oil on canvas by Andrew Gault
Andrew is an Architect and Landscape Painter.
He paints the Irish and Scottish landscapes capturing the interplay between water, land and weather and conveying the vast forms and structures of these places around our coasts and along our rivers
His paintings continue an exploration into how landscape holds our emotions and how these differ because of our own experiences and culture: marks are made layer by layer, each with its meaning partially obscured by the next, just as each generation is with time obscured by those who come after.
Andrew's paintings are in private collections in Ireland, England, Scotland, America and Australia.
“There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil. The man who is wrong still retains some respect for truth, if only by accepting the responsibility of choice. But the man in the middle is the knave who blanks out the truth in order to pretend that no choice or values exist, who is willing to sit out the course of any battle, willing to cash in on the blood of the innocent or to crawl on his belly to the guilty, who dispenses justice by condemning both the robber and the robbed to jail, who solves conflicts by ordering the thinker and the fool to meet each other halfway. In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit. In that transfusion of blood which drains the good to feed the evil, the compromise is the transmitting rubber tube.” - Ayn Rand.
