Andrew Gadd’s output is a combination of Old Master influences (particularly that of Goya and Velasquez) and a contemporary approach which mixes figurative and allegorical styles. Gadd’s oils are rich narratives, full of personality, that have the viewer posing all sorts of questions. How did that woman become airborne, and why were the strings already attached? Who is this family of labelmakers, and how did they hone their skills in this particular trade? What is written on all those tags and why is that woman wearing them? Where on earth is that outpost? And why does it look like there might often be a hullabaloo at the Cat’s Meow?
