Artist Statement

“A major preoccupation in Andy’s work is the way humans are driven at the root by an intense need to exist.  We can’t get enough of internal and external growth.  Andy uses a variety of abstract motifs to explore that desire and how it’s mediated by technology, media and the limits of the material world.”
