In 2008 Andrew Sutherland entered the art scene in Cape Town, having his first group show at Salon 91, followed soon after with a solo show in early 2009.
Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection in Cape Town will once again present a solo exhibition of his paintings & illustrations titled ‘Other Dust’.
Andrew’s latest body of work has been created almost entirely by referencing his growing collection of archival photographs, postcards and memorabilia.
The idea behind extracting elements found within these references has been to create new stories from old worlds. This “Other Dust” shows us the interesting history and practices of documented cultures and civilizations from around the world.
Other Dust is a tribute to the old world and all its wonders. It admires adventure and discovery and exposes strange traditions and values.
All the works on display were made in Taiwan, where Sutherland has been living and traveling for the last 1-½ years. His exposure to Eastern culture has certainly played a part in the development in this series. His exposure to different ways of living and practices has helped shape this body of work.
