Andrew Witkin’s work investigates structures and systems that shape the construct our interpretation. His practice blurs the artificial separation between aesthetic exertions and real experience. Working with photographs, furniture, text, and found objects, the artist's use of imagery in repeated series of varying duplicative distortions purposefully leads a viewer down a proverbial and problematic path to find improbable significance far removed from the original source.
Witkin has had solo museum exhibitions at the Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, New Hampshire and the DeCordova Sculpture Park & Museum in Lincoln, Massachussetts. He has been in group shows at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston; the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; the Carpenter Center for Visual Arts at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachussetts; along with numerous gallery other shows. He has works in the permanent collections of Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston and the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. He is co-represented by James Harris Gallery in Seattle, Washington and lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
