Andrew Litten’s work explores raw human existence – the beautiful and the abject, the malevolent and the compassionate; it is all bound together in equal measure. Like so many expressionistic artists, Georg Baselitz comes to mind, in Andrew’s work the rawness is also the vulnerability. Andrew is searching for poetry, the poetry of living, loving, hurting and dying; the vulnerable, the powerful, the human.
His work caries extreme experience; passion and flippancy; allure and repulsion. These qualities and Andrew’s sense of purpose have been influenced by the powerful poetry of Louise Bourgeois, the master of interpreting our human beast within.
