Featured Artist For October 2017: Andrew Omoding

October Featured Artist is Andrew Omoding. Andrew Omoding is a resident studio artist at our Cockpit Friday Studio Project.

Andrew Omoding’s work is intuitive and instinctive, using his tacit knowledge of form, shape and construction to add and discard elements as he works. He buzzes around the studio, exploring the cupboards and shelves for buried treasures, which he uses to create large-scale sculptural forms. He builds up his creations by systematic layering, wrapping and attaching, often adding textiles, painted patterns and textures to complete the piece. His work is personal and sometimes autobiographical but always intriguing.

He has recently been commissioned alongside Anthony Stevens by House Biennal and Outside In  to create a joint exhibition, Common Threads, for the first time.
Both artists work with mixed media and textiles, taking discarded and unwanted materials and repurposing them to create new objects that share personal stories and perspectives. They were both influenced by the theme of ‘Excess’ and the work of HOUSE Biennial invited artist Laura Ford for this commission.
