Andrew Omoding’s work is intuitive and instinctive. He buzzes around the studio, exploring cupboards and shelves for buried treasures, which he uses to create large-scale sculptural forms, using his tacit knowledge of form, shape and construction to add and discard elements as he works. Andrew builds up his creations by systematic layering, wrapping and attaching, adding textile swatches, painted patterns and textures to complete the piece.
Much of Andrew’s work involves story telling and performance, incorporating music and both written and spoken language. Andrew weaves, sews, threads, constructs, hammers and screws materials together merging with and becoming part of the work while simultaneously singing and telling stories.
Andrew’s work is personal, sometimes autobiographical and always intriguing.
