Ranging from painting to sculpture, Andrew Stahl’s work explores the symbolic, the formal and the expressive whilst engaging notions of the transcultural. His paintings and sculptures are often simple structures and yet at close proximity embed smaller images, discoveries and details. Symbolic details within these paintings and sculptures do not necessarily reveal a narrative, they are a collection of flowing thoughts floating across the surfaces.

Stahl’s work has been shown in numerous solo exhibitions, including Hot Summer by the Khlong, YenakArt Villa, Bangkok (2017); New Paintings, Robert Steele Gallery, New York (2010); Parasol, Matthew Bown Gallery London (2007); Two Weeks in Sydney: Paintings, College of Fine Arts, UNSW, Sydney (2004); and New Paintings and Drawings, Bangkok Mosaic, 100 Tonson Gallery, Bangkok (2003–2004),Chiangmai Museum, Thailand (2001), Flowers Gallery, London (1998).
