Andrew Orloski

Andrew Orloski (b. 1986)
“My current work explores notions of monumentalism and banality with an inquisitive look at mundane, often overlooked objects we surround ourselves with daily. My process utilizes a variety of traditional and contemporary mold making techniques, which aid in the transformation of objects through materiality. I am especially engaged in creating work that crafts narratives between the ephemeral and permanent. Industrial materials such as metals, glass, concrete and gypsum are essential to my process because of their deep roots in history and economy and can be cast, fabricated, welded and modified to allow weight and balance to work as subject matter”.
