Huw Andrews' multidisciplinary artworks are concerned with how the individual navigates the systems that regulate their behaviour, including social norms, information technology and institutional regulations. More specifically, Andrews is interested in the tension between the individual and these systems; especially how systems can be normalising and pervasive, yet essential to functioning in the contemporary world. Reflecting this tension in his artworks, Andrews uses varied approaches to research, production and titling, typically combining vaguely familiar scenes with wry commentary, subtle interventions and reflective elements. For example, to help displace the viewer he has removed location signifiers from text-based works and also edited video footage with audio tracks from different locations. Finding his place within regulatory systems, and reflecting his uneasy relationship with them, Andrews creates a tense cooperation within, and between, the process, form and content of his multidisciplinary output.



Huw Andrews uses video, sound, animation, illustration, photo, text, objects and performance to produce artworks. In 2010 he completed a Fine Art degree at Leeds Metropolitan University, winning the Edna Lumb Travel Prize there in 2009. In 2018 he completed an MSc in Psychology of Education at the University of Bristol, conducting an empirical research project into art classification (whether an individual classifies an artefact as art or not).
