Andrew Marsh makes beautiful and terrifying art to celebrate life in the face of severe chronic pain through brutal performance iron casting, earthwork, metal fabrication, and chainsaw wood carving styles. Andrew carved Make It Writhe, a 3-piece set of wood sculptures currently on display at KECU and JSP, for the 2013 JSP Shakespeare SummerStage production of As You Like It.
He received his MFA in Studio Art & Design from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, IL (2001) and BFA in Art Studio from the University of Kentucky (1995). As Artist in Residence at the award-winning City Museum in St. Louis, MO, Andrew constructed over 50 interactive exhibits, monumental steel playground features, and specialty environments in this most unusual museum. Andrew’s metal and wood sculptures, photographs, paintings, videos, and performances have appeared in over 250 group and solo exhibitions and collections throughout the United States and United Kingdom. He is an innovative artist, serves as Chair of the Board of Directors and Executive Officer for Josephine Sculpture Park, and is Assistant Director for Conn Center for Renewable Energy Research at the University of Louisville.
