ANDREW BROTT lives and works in New Orleans.
His private studio is located in the University district of Uptown New Orleans just minutes from Loyola & Tulane Universities at 5110 Freret Street. Andrew is committed to re-building the New Orleans arts community that was devastated from Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005.
Over the past twenty six years of work, he has developed a style of design and execution based on creation and death, life and decay, destruction and erosion. It is always in some form of evolution, flux, or change.
These designs are always changing and evolving to fulfill different purposes. In doing this, a Natural and Living Aesthetic is created.
I rely on research and imagery from nature and industry as primary influences in my work. Airplanes and hummingbirds both may fly, but each evolved separately designed to complete specific tasks. Their designs evolved because of trial and error. In industry, some planes flew, some planes crashed; in nature, some hummingbirds mated, some hummingbirds starved. Both the laws of physics and nature have created a natural and living aesthetic through natural selection. I find my relationship to my own art and my knowledge of this aesthetic guides this work that I passionately pursue.
