Artist Statement

Home » Words » Artist Statement


Andrew Backhouse is an artist currently working as an Experimental DJ and Sound Artist. The underlying emphasis of his work is the wish to transmit a sense of wonder, naivety & enthusiasm upon his discovery of a thing of beauty.

He wants to make it a joy forever.

Influenced by the Lakes Poets, Edward Lear, Jez Riley French, AGF and RuPaul, Andrew’s artistic enquiry documents “The new shiny thing” and tries to broadcast his enthusiasm for it whilst posing questions about authenticity and worth along the way.

Will the media, now divorced from the situation, hold as much appeal to the recipient as to the artist?
