Andrew Totman’s work was first introduced to QG&W during the 2019 Peebles Print Prize. In fact Andrew was the 2019 Peebles Print Prize Highly Commended Award winner for his aquatint, multi-plate etching Down to the River.
‘Many of the deeply red multi-plate monotype works included in Intuition incorporate organic forms that remind the viewer of hastily glimpsed, evanescent bones or muscle tissue encased in blood dyed veils of fugacious muslin scrim. The constant repetitious pumping beat of the Suzanne Vega song ‘Blood Makes Noise’, echoes as foramen within bone are displayed, paths are mapped for the eye, to travel up and down tendons.’
