Andrew Douglas Forbes...painter and opera singer
Andrew sees his two professions as being, in essence, the same as both are concerned with communication, with harmonies and discords, and describing emotions, objects, feelings and colours. His painting is subtle and atmospheric, the objects or views he chooses to paint suggesting far more than the obvious and immediate. A cottage in half-light radiates feelings of warmth and homeliness, nostalgia for the past and its old inhabitants, its outlines melting in and out of the surroundings, embedding it in the landscape.
Figures may appear: a shoal of fishermen, yellow oil slickered, swim up from their boats into the streets of their village; a woman half-turning, finds her way round unfamiliar corners of Tenby; and a huddle of women laugh helplessly on a Swansea beach. Interiors with flowers and still lifes of fragile objects
