Andy has been Master Printer at Tandem Press (UW-Madison), since 1988. Prior to this he printed at Gemini G.E.L. in Los Angeles. He received his MFA from Arizona State University and his BFA at the Center for Creative Studies-School of Art and Design in Detroit, Michigan.
The body of work represented in The Weight of Weather depicts landscapes of the mind, inspired by Antoni Gaudi, Frank Gehry, Saul Steinberg and Ben Shahn. These new works are rooted in abstracted architecture, blocks of stackable shapes, and repetitious doodles that develop into landscapes, buildings and clouds. The pieces are not intended to be political in nature, but know that they tell a story about human manipulation of the environment and our ecology. So be it.
