Andrew McPhail is a Canadian visual artist. Living in Toronto in the 1980's and 90's his work focused primarily on drawing, often with pencil crayon on a polyester film called mylar. After moving to Hamilton in 2005, his interest shifted towards three dimensional work and performance. In his accumulative, craft oriented practice he uses ephemeral, disposable materials such as band aids, Kleenex and post-its to create epic, monumental sculptures and installations and performances.
Andrew has exhibited nationally and internationally and in 2013 was the recipient of the Canada Council International Studio in Paris. He is also cofounder, with Stephen Altena, of the Hundred Dollar Gallery and a founding member of The Assembly in Hamilton, Ontario.
Andrew will be working both inside and outside the gallery during his time here with us.
