Contributing Artist for Children’s Show Pilot

“The Adventures of Catty Wompus” was filmed on the Westside this summer. A set was built to look like the inside of a sandcastle.  57 of Andrew’s Fish were installed on the walls of the sandcastle. For more information about the show, here is an article from the Santa Cruz Good Times. IMG_7173 IMG_7092 IMG_7101 IMG_7104 IMG_7105 IMG_7172 IMG_7171 IMG_7177 IMG_7176 IMG_7175 IMG_7174

Mosaic Hot Tub

Mosaic Hot Tub
I designed and built this mosaic hot tub from the ground up in my backyard in downtown Santa Cruz.
Hot Tub 2
The hot tub was designed and initially built for a sculpture seminar class at UCSC in the early 90’s, taught by Rick Soss.
Hot tub in progress
The structure was built of steel and concrete block (thank you Jay Howe, Bruce Malley, and Barton Cline). It is 6′ deep, and features an ergonomically-engineered, cantilevered seat, making it possible to submerge oneself into the cavern beneath the seat. Monumental art is cool (no, hot).


Fish Wall

fishwall+aw
Kings Creek, 220 Mountain Hermon Road, Scotts Valley, California. 3′ x 25′ mosaic mural commissioned by George Ow Jr., on behalf of the Ow Family, for the retaining wall at the entrance of King’s Village Shopping Center. Designed, rendered, and installed around eight steel, rainbow trout created by fabricator/artist Darren Forbes. My wife Dori assisted. Time to install: 28 days.

Santa Cruz Harbor

IMG_1257
Business as usual at the harbor, with a twist. Is that an anchor next to the half model of Merlin? Yep. Now I’m represented by the harbor I grew up sailing in. How cool is that? Thank you Harbor staff.


Anchors Aweigh

anchor1
anchor2
The Anchors I’ve been working on were made while I reread the first book of C.S. Forester’s Hornblower series, Mr. Midshipman Hornblower. They come from personal experience and my interest in maritime history.

I’ve been presenting them to the owners of my favorite restaurants (especially ones within sight of the water) in the hope that they be hung where they are visible to the public. So far, as you can see from previous posts, there is one in Davenport, and one on the wharf in Santa Cruz.

My wife Dori and I are in the process of creating an online shop, which will be up soon. The two Anchors pictured are available for $250 each plus tax. This is my I.P.O. (initial private offering) to friends and visitors to my portfolio.

If you are interested please contact me. Thank you.

Cheers,
Andrew

Mud Fish

untitled
Concrete, steel, beach pebbles. 12″ x 5″

These rockfish were a transition. Concrete has been my medium since the 1980’s, however it’s too caustic. The mud fish series allowed me to refine my chops and render forms with often-leftover materials from other work-related projects. They seem clunky to me now, but were a valuable experience.
