Stephen Andrews is a Toronto-based artist originally from Sarnia, Ontario. His work deals with memory, identity, technology, and their representations in various media including drawing, animation, and recently ceramics and painting. Andrews states that to represent both the message and the means by which it is delivered, he renders various ‘looks’ of mechanical reproduction by hand.
Over the last twenty-five years, he has exhibited his work in Canada, the U.S.A., Brazil, Scotland, France, and Japan. In 2015 a major survey exhibition curated by Kitty Scott, titled Stephen Andrews: POV was presented at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto. He is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Belkin Art Gallery, the Schwartz Collection, Harvard as well as many private collections. Andrews is a recipient of the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts (2019).
He was also part of the group exhibition The Body and Society at the Embassy Cultural House showing from November 10th to December 9th, 1988.
