With a background in mold-making and life-casting, Andrew Francis’ recent work cups itself within the logic of industrial production. Taking up the form of objects like cheap plastic masks, dirty socks, and reflective screens, it attempts to become “more real” by merging back into the field of consumer debris that orbits each of us. Andrew has participated in exhibitions at Mother Gallery, Klaus Von Nichtssagend Gallery, The Hand, La Mama La Galleria, and Valerina Gallerina. He has been awarded artist residencies at the Lighthouse Works on Fishers Island, NY, and the Hurleyville Maker’s Lab at the Center for Discovery in Hurleyville, NY.
