Andrew Testa is an artist, collector, writer and educator who’s practice is concerned with the nature of images—images which at once inscribe a historical continuity between the past and present, as well as index an inevitable sense of loss and drift.Through collecting, storytelling, folding and arranging, his prints begin to reframe and represent fragments of objects into assembled entities, evoking nuanced observations and narratives of an object’s past and its collector’s present. Testa is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in printmaking at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland, and has additionally taught at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, British Columbia, and Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. He achieved his MFA and BFA from York University in Toronto, Ontario, and is the recipient of SSHRC and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grants along with numerous awards including the Samuel Sarick Purchase Prize. He currently resides and works in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
