Andrew Gillespie lives and works in Birmingham.
As a contemporary sculptor, Andrew’s work explores surfaces, appropriation and the urban environment. He is interested in the collision of surfaces, structures and materials. He regularly translates familiar imagery and objects through printmaking and casting, exploiting the shift in status and content that occurs with each gesture.
Working as Recent Activity, Andrew curates a programme of exhibitions and events, bringing new artists to Birmingham and activating new audiences.
“I aim to bring attention to a difficult object, something that might have been concealed, overlooked, is hard to exhibit, in a state of disrepair or with ambiguous precedence. I plan to remake and re-contextualise this “awkward” object, re-presenting it in the public space of the Green Heart.”
