Andrew Clausen

Andrew Clausen

Born: 1977

Hometown: Ventura

Based in: Arnhem, Netherlands

Andrew Clausen (U.S.A., 1977) began his artistic training in the cooperative studios of Art City in Southern California. From there he traveled to Italy where for 13 years he worked alongside master artisans and developed his craft into a combination of conceptual ideas and refined use of materials. Cast concrete, metals, and 3-D printed composite materials are his primary mediums which are used to form works that span between minimalist thought-provoking objects to engaging fabrications. He currently lives and works in the city of Arnhem, Netherlands.

His current work applies the ingenuity of contemporary construction and engineering techniques to produce delicate works that have an atmosphere of stillness and material honesty. Cast concrete serves as a matrix for compositions that include canvas, resins, graphite, and 3D-printed composite polymers. His unique process, which begins in the realm of 2-dimensional graphical design, is transformed, through digital fabrication, into subtle relief patterns that are echoed onto the concrete surface. The alchemy of the curing concrete is the last step in the process which solidifies the combination of materials into a minimalistic, yet technically complex work which straddles between painting and sculpture. His visual language draws from the geometric forms found in industrial environments, machinery, and architecture.
