Andrew Christman's mixed-media artworks explore the tension and play between scientific and intuitive understanding. The improvisational, multi-layered studio practice he employs utilizes photography, printing, painting, sculpture and drawing to synthesize the opposing languages of expressionist image-making with the didactic conventions of scientific representation.
Andrew Christman received a BFA in painting at Pratt Institute Brooklyn and certificates in Art Ed from Pratt Institute and Moore College of Art. He attended Sotheby’s Institute of Art / Manchester University, UK where he received an MA in East Asian Art History. Andrew is currently a teaching artist for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum Learning Specialist at the Woodmere Art Museum and a co-founder of Way of Words an interactive poetry and visual art project that integrates writing, installation, bookmaking and collage.
In addition, Andrew has spent time building puppets, props and sets for both traditional and experimental theater productions at the Internationational Fringe Festival (NYC), La Mama etc (NYC), PS 1222 (NYC) and Ralph Lee's Mettawee River Theater Company.
