andrw’s practice of making can best be categorized as multifaceted. Their expressions have been within the public realm for nearly twenty years. They have played in numerous punk bands over the years, while exploring the various subsets of art that seem to trickle off of the genre leading to the exploration of DIY culture: audio recording, zines, stencil making, screen printing, tailoring, and the like.
While studying writing, literary theory, and anthropology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, andrw catalogued a handful of zines, countless unpublished poems and stories, and a few dozen radical folk songs that were housed in self-released cassettes, CDRs, and digital formats.
In the two years following university, andrw mostly employed a Burroughs-esque cut up method as a means of making poetry while taking time away from making music and typical writing practices while coping with addiction and what would eventually be diagnosed as borderline personality disorder.
Since seeking treatment in 2016, andrw has been committed to both physical and emotional wellness while incorporating therapeutic elements of mindfulness and modes of navigating trauma into their interdisciplinary work.
andrw continues to write and make drawings, paintings, assemblage, philosophical street art, and audio recordings on a regular basis to continually navigate the absurdity of existence. Their curated body of solo exhibitions, publications, and audio releases as well as select collaborative works are catalogued below.
