> DESCRIPTION

We are pleased to announce Andrew Sexton’s second solo show with Oliver Kamm/5BE Gallery.

In “Portraits of Family and Friends”, Sexton focuses on new subjects - his mother, two brothers, and good friend Daryl.

Sexton continues with his unique approach to portraiture. His usage of unconventional sculptural materials in his three-dimensional portraits, alongside his obsessively detailed cartoon-like drawings, together serve to explore the personae of his subjects.

“I still believe that the best way to make work is to come straight from the heart and the one thing I know I can always stand behind
is my love for the amazing, hilarious, and bizarre people around me.

I try to use the positive emotions generated by my relationships with the subjects to not only fuel the creation of the work, but also to hopefully convey some of those feelings to the viewer.”
- Andrew Sexton, April 2008

In 2005 Sexton received his MFA from Yale. Artforum called his first solo show at Oliver Kamm/5BE gallery in 2006 “a peculiar and appealing confection of mood, material and method whose brand of fond hyperbole is just over-the-top enough to charm.”
