Machines Bearing the Weight of Delicacy
The work of Chad Andrews of the Department of Art and Art History is currently on display at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, CT (through October 25). The museum's website describes Mr. Andrews' work as follows.
Using silicone and a caulking gun, artist Chad Andrews creates wall drawings of trucks, tractors and implements taken from his life on a farm for Machines Bearing the Weight of Delicacy. The physicality of materials, process and assemblage play a vital role in his imagery. These ephemeral, one-time installations are destroyed at the end of the exhibition, and will never be displayed again. Catch them before they’re gone!
