Andrew Weatherill’s work strives to navigate the ceaseless changes of the urban environment, investigating the available expanse of space relating to structure, texture and sight to explore how we ascribe value and memory to the environment we inhabit.
Born in Port Moresby in 1972, Weatherill presently lives and works in Melbourne. He received an MFA from RMIT University in 2016. His artworks focus on the shifting point of view as a means to question perception, location, and subjectivity. Trained as a painter and printmaker, his art practice oscillates between analogue, digital and spatial positions that extend the nature of the contemporary print practice. Interweaving mediums of photography, collage and intaglio printmaking allows Weatherill to create unique artworks that embody the artist’s hand and the shifting point of contact between mass and space.
