Holyer, Andy b.1959 British AR Check Out Girl, 36
Holyer, Andy b.1959 British AR Check Out Girl, 36 x 24 inches (91.5x61 cms), Oil on Board Signed and Dated 1988. Exhibited at the Wakefield Art Gallery 14-11-1993 Andy spent the first twenty years of his career in west Yorkshire, initially studying drama and art at Leeds University. He later achieved an MA in fine art from the same university. The Yorkshire of the 1980's and 90's was a scene of post industrial decay with associated social disorientation. Inevitably Andy responded to this. He drew on the British social realist tradition and indeed was studio assistant to the well known 'kitchen sink' painter John Bratby. In Check Out Girl, he is depicting the utter tedium of girls operating check out tills and has emphasized her machine like attitude by depicting her hand as a claw moving goods along the counter in a haze of tedium. During this period Holyer exhibited widely in Yorkshire, London and Germany. In 1999 he returned to his native Romney Marsh and settled into life in a lighthouse keeper's cottage on Dungeness. Inevitably the change in light and environment led to a change of direction in colour and subject matter. Keeping the dramatic quality of his early work, new work took on an increasing Neo Romantic quality. A keen interest in local history led in 2008 to the publication of 'Life on Marsh, art and anecdotes from Dungeness and Romney Marsh'. In this publication stories from the marsh have been lavishly illustrated by Holyer paintings. More recently there was a large scale retrospective of his work at The Grand Hotel in Folkestone.
