Born in Birmingham, UK, of Jamaican parents, Hurvin Anderson comments on the 'exotic' - what is generally expected from lush Caribbean landscapes or interiors in which people relax or unwind.
Anderson recreates spaces that are known to him. The juxtaposition of the social interiors of the Barbershop works to the personal, lived-in spaces of the Mirror works serves to illustrate the multiple layers of perspective that the artist strives to define.
Anderson's paintings engage with the traditions of landscape painting and the history of abstraction. His pictorial world has been shaped by his background. Born in Birmingham of Jamaican parents, Anderson's paintings draw on the influence of both regions.
