About Andrew Backhouse
Andrew Backhouse is a fine artist based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. His primary artistic pursuit is to try and transfer the wonderment of the unfurling of creation to a new recipient, much as how he originally saw the spectacle. Utilising Field Recording and vintage photography techniques, Andrew works around Yorkshire and further afield, in the UK.
Born of English and Scottish parents in East Anglia, Andrew has moved around the country on the back of his Dad’s ambition to succeed. This has led him to question the geo-location of creativity – can the Genii Locus of an act of creation be transmitted through recorded/scored media and how does it affect the viewer/listener/recipient? Can you relocate a sense of wonderment through the recorded time-based medium?
Although the work Andrew creates is recorded almost as an afterthought of the location – a summing up of the place he no longer inhabits – there is a duality between the artist and the artwork.
