Maquette Day 5 By Andy Ness
The Artist: after 17 years of creating art in New York, Andy moved home to Minnesota and currently creates work in two studios: Minneapolis' Northeast and Grand Marais' Maple Hill. He earned his undergrad in sculpture from Pratt in Brooklyn and his graduate degree from RISD where he continued to work as a professor. His most recent show was at the Contemporary Art Fair in Bologna, Italy.
The Work: Though most of his works in recent months have been large scale paintings, Andy has also produced a few delicious gems which are now showing in UPSTATE. He uses aspects of collage and hand mixed acrylic pigment dispersions to create these little mysteries. All materials are light-fast. Enjoy.
This piece is a 22 x 20 painting on canvas.
