When Andrew Bick goes about his painting, then it is not only in the spirit of creativity, but also in a rich actualization of art history. Influenced above all by English Constructivism and System Art, Bick has found his own style. The starting point of each work is the grid. It structures the ground upon which Bick makes his shapes dance. Some lines define boundaries in the painting process, others are painted over, and sometimes the brush completely departs from the drawing’s guidelines and fills the pictorial space with the voluminous quality of its color. This creates a multifaceted interplay between order and freedom, painting and drawing, past and present. The transitions are hardly noticeable, bringing the extremes together and captivating the viewer.
