Andrew Testa is an artist, collector, educator, and writer, currently living in Corner Brook, Newfoundland where he is a Visiting Assistant Professor in print media and advanced studios at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland. He has additionally taught as an Sessional Instructor at Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, British Columbia. He achieved his MFA and BFA from York University in Toronto Ontario, in 2016 and 2013 respectively and is the recipient of SSHRC and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grants along with numerous awards including the Samuel Sarick Purchase Prize and a nomination for the York University Thesis Prize. His art 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.
