Andrew Brehm is an artist and educator working in sculpture and video. His sculpture is scaled to the body, facilitating an easy relationship between audience and the kinetic or performative qualities of the work. Andrew works in many mediums and most recently has focused on pulping paper for use as a casting and sculpting medium. The soft, nebulous qualities lends itself easily to absurdist and often humorous storytelling present in the work.
Andrew was born in Pennsylvania where he initially studied furniture making and later received his MFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University. Recently, he was awarded fellowships at Socrates Sculpture Park in Astoria, Queens and at the Bemis Center in Omaha, NE. He frequently teaches workshops at residencies and arts organizations across the US including The Carving Center in East Rutland, VT, Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, and Beam Center in Brooklyn, NY. Recent solo exhibitions include “Flamingo” at Columbus Property Management in New York, NY , “Swiss Trails” at the Belfry in Hornell, NY, and “Hominine” at Practice in Philadelphia. This fall his work will be featured in an exhibition at the University of Maine. He is the current manager of the fine art workshops at Columbia University and maintains a sculpture studio in Beacon NY.
