Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Andrew Bryant

Gathering resources from print, the internet, and his own photography, Andrew creates detailed paintings of isolated objects, which are in some way lacking or incomplete. Fragile, without the means to propel themselves, or missing an important part, they long for the completion of their function.

Andrew’s ideas are as much informed by his training as a psychoanalyst as his life-long engagement with art and image-making. By subtly blending the narcissism of wishful thinking with the disappointment of experience, his work allegorically explores contemporary neoliberal fantasies of self-sufficiency and the actual psycho-social dependencies they aim to deny. His new series of stones found on the beach extends these concerns to explore our disavowed dependency on the planet and its environments.
A Goldsmiths MFA graduate, Andrew was shortlisted for the Contemporary British Painting Prize and the Wells Art Contemporary in 2022. He is a visiting tutor at Newlyn School of Art, and his work is in private collections in the UK and abroad.
