Andrew Au’s “Life Industries”
Andrew Au, an assistant professor of art at Miami University Middletown in Ohio, will display his latest body of works titled “Life Industries” at the UAB Visual Arts Gallery from March 16 – April 6. These works include gouache paintings, silkscreen prints and sculptural representations of fictitious specimens that Au refers to as “life products.” The works explore the viability of auto assembly in manufacturing and its relationship to the natural chemical processes of complex living beings.
Au will give a talk about “Life Industries” in the UAB Visual Arts Gallery on Tuesday, March 13 at 10am. This talk is FREE and open to the public. Au will also be in attendance for the opening reception March 16, 5pm – 8pm.
Andrew Au received his BFA from Asbury College and his MFA from the University of Cincinnati. Au’s works have been shown ALL over the world, from California to South Korea and we are thrilled to have him here at UAB.
