Artspace is excited to feature Andrew Hladky as the 2016 Summer Artist in Residence. For the month of July, Hladky will welcome visitors to his temporary studio, Artspace’s Gallery One.
During his month-long residency, Andrew Hladky will create a series of paintings in his distinctive additive style. Hladky fuses everyday household objects, such as toothpicks and cocktail sticks, with thick layers of oil paint to create intricate, undulating surfaces that push the boundaries of painting and sculpture.
Andrew Hladky received a Masters in Painting from the Wimbledon School of Art in London, England in 2003. He has been the recipient of several residencies in 2016 alone; including the Resident Artist at VCCA, Amherst, VA; 2016 Artist in Residence at Teton Artlab, Jackson, Wyoming; and 2016 Artist in Residence at Jentel, Banner, Wyoming; and most recently the Ruth Katzman Scholarship, The League Residency at Vyt, Sparkill, New York.
