Biography: Andrew Erdos

Andrew Erdos
Andrew Erdos

Andrew Erdos is a new media artist and sculptor based in Brooklyn. His multi-disciplinary works often combine blown and cast glass, video, photography and installation. The artist’s meticulously-fabricated objects and environments reference the complexity of the interdependent and often conflicting relationships between technology, nature, time, physics and faith.

Erdos first began working with molten glass at age 15 while taking elective credits at Bucks County Community College in his home town of Newtown, Pa. It was also at this time that he took his first class at The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass. He describes this experience as being decisive in his decision to pursue a career in art after completing high school.

Since graduating from Alfred University in 2007, Erdos has exhibited internationally at venues including The Orlando Art Museum, Oklahoma City Art Museum, Toledo Museum of Art, The Corning Museum of Glass, The Chazen Museum, Knoxville Art Museum, National Center for Contemporary Art Moscow, New Britain Museum, Beijing BS1 Contemporary Art Center, the Kemper Museum and the State Hermitage Museum St. Petersburg Russia.

In 2012, Erdos worked as an Artist-in-Residence at The Studio at The Corning Museum of Glass and was the recipient of the Rakow Commission in 2013. In 2016, he returned to The Studio to complete his second residency, during which time he began exploring a new body of work, and, as he puts it, the next phase of his life. He spent the time experimenting with new materials and processes of glassblowing, solid sculpting, and coldworking techniques.
