Maryland Art Place in partnership with Hotel Indigo Baltimore is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Maryland-based artist, Andrew Thorp. The exhibition is on view at Hotel Indigo, located at 24 West Franklin St. from  May 3 – August 1, 2024. A public reception will take place Thursday, May 16 from to 9 pm during the BROMO Art Walk.

About the artist: Andrew Thorp was born and raised in Tulsa, OK migrating to MD to pursue a BFA from MICA and later an MFA from Towson University..  Currently Thorp  works and resides in the neighborhood of Waverly in Baltimore, MD.

Thorp’s paintings are pictures from liminal everyday spaces painted usually with oil on canvas or panel. He states: “These images – a stray hubcap, a chain link fence, and grass growing on a median – are typical and even banal, but in them I find immense depth, presence and beauty. I enjoy the immediacy and quickness of paint, often letting the paint be itself rather than worrying too much about representation. I am interested in not only what objects are in my paintings but what they can become. I focus on presence in my work and what it means to present in a world susceptible to collapse due to climate catastrophe and economic disaster.

Please join us on Thursday, May 16 from  to pm at Hotel Indigo  for the opening reception celebrating the solo exhibition of Andrew Thorp. Hotel Indigo is free and open to the public.
