Second in The Series:
Dancing With The Wind

 

Dancing With The Wind (left) is the second entry in Andrew's 'hanging bronze' series, begun in 2011 with his work Into The Light (now sold out) and designed to suggest a defience of gravity! A thin wisp of bronze fabric swirls upward around her body. The dancer joyfully sheds her bonds from the earth capturing that moment of complete freedom. This, the first in an edition of 12, made her debut at our gallery holiday reception and has already been purchased. The second in the edition is cast and will be finished soon says Andrew.


 


Andrew lectures to the Grove School Assembly


Andrew with Richard Chorney, President of the Grove School

Lecture at The Grove School, Madison CT

 

In mid march Andrew was invited by Richard Chorney (pictured w/ Andrew at left), president of the Grove School in Madison, CT, to present a lecture to the general assembly of students and to give a workshop for the students in their sculpture class.

Andrew's lecture focused on his background and training as an artist, and included anecdotes from his career in the world of sculpture. The students were thrilled to see the source metal Andrew uses, as a heavy bronze ingot was passed along and with the help of one student Andrew unveiled his large This Man who Flies – which was followed by an outburst of enthusiastic applause by the gathering. The question and answer portion of the talk was both insightful and humorous as one can expect from Andrew!

The sculpture workshop revolved around the process of making life molds and plaster castings of each student's hands. It was a lively and exciting day for all involved!.


 

Special Edition Bronze:
Blind Destiny

 

Blind Destiny (left) is a new, special edition (limited to four) of Andrew's recent work Destiny with the added element of a blindfold covering the eyes of the dancer. This addition lends a mystery to the work - leaping off into the unknown. Andrew has forever felt pulled by his own artistic destiny coupled with the faith that his creative visions will guide him on his life’s journey. “In many ways this version of Destiny is the story of my life” exclaims the artist.


Three Different Note card Sets!

Andrew is now offering 3 different note card sets: a pastel series featuring Angels, a series of bronze Dance Sculptures and a pastel series based on sketches created in Dance Studios. These make excellent gifts to share your love of Andrew's work with friends. Call the studio with questions or to order!
