the still life collection
It is more than twenty-seven years since Andrew Hemingway put down his beloved egg tempera, which had taken him over a decade to master. In the early nineties, he began to work in pastel, using the medium in a way largely unseen before. He created pastels which looked more like paintings than drawings (as had been the case for hundreds of years).
The new medium suggested a new subject matter, one which he had hitherto never considered: the Still Life. He is now recognised as a modern master of both the medium and the genre. His pastel paintings have enabled him to work on a huge scale, the largest measuring three metres in length and two metres in height. His pastel Still Lifes can be found in a number of important collections around the world.
