When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Andrew Carr

Andrew Carr is still pretty young, having earned his BFA in '06. His website is an eclectic gathering of works by an artist who is still trying to figure out what he wants to say. But it's clearly there. Somewhere between his darkly humorous portrayals of youthful indiscretion and his poignant meditations on loneliness there is a voice as clear and candid as Holden Caufield's. His website (www.andrewcarr.net) also features what may be the best artist bio I've ever seen.

"Round 'em up Cowboy" oil 21" x 36"

"Thin Envelope" oil 24" x 20"

"School Bus" oil 22" x 40"

"The Laundromat" oil 30" x 40"

"Bonfire Jump" etching 9" x 12"
(from a series of etchings depicting the college party scene)

  1. Agreed about the bio. That is the first time I looked at a bio and actually WANTED to buy the art! Then I find out the work is awesome too... Thanks for sharing, David.
