Stephen An­drews’s best­known cre­ation is per­haps a 500,000-piece mo­saic on the ho­tel once known as Trump Tower—a panorama of faces com­mis­sioned to cel­e­brate, iron­i­cally, mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism long be­fore the Don­ald’s pres­i­dency. There are traces of the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal mo­ment in An­drews’s new ex­hi­bi­tion, too. It in­cludes paint­ings of mir­rors, a metaphor for the echo cham­ber of to­day’s Twit­ter­verse, plus draw­ings of na­ture and cur­rent events, like an eerie de­pic­tion of street vi­o­lence ren­dered in in­verted colours.
