Andres Vosu is a Toronto, Ontario based artist and member of The Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts. His work alludes to human emotion, frailty and vulnerability. He uses visual elements such as figures, objects, symbols and icons. By placing two or more elements within the frame, he intends to show the interplay between human activity, ideas and community.\nEDUCATION:\nToronto School of Art 1996 to Present, Courses in Drawing, Water Medium, Sculpture, Collage\nConcordia University : 1982-83 Post Graduate Diploma, Communication Studies;\n1979-82 Bachelor of Fine Arts, Film Production and Photography\nCarlton University: 1976-79 Bachelor of Arts, Double Major - Political Science and Sociology\nTEACHING EXPERIENCE:Concordia University 1982-83 Teaching Assistant, Film Production, Communications Studies Post Graduate Diploma Program\nGRANTS:1984 Minister Of State, Multiculturalism Grant for research and pre-production of documentary film, Faces of the City.\nEXHIBITION HISTORY:2012 Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts, Solo Exhibition -\nOPTIC VERVE\n2009 Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts, Solo Exhibition -\nShoutArt!\n2008 Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts, Solo Exhibition -\nObject Versus Subject2009 to Present, Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts, Group Shows1997, 2001 Toronto School of Art, year-end Group Shows1981 Concordia University, Faculty of Fine Art Group Show\nAWARDS:1982 Winner, 16mm film, over 10 Minutes, Todays Protest, Media Byte, Concordia University Multi-Media Festival\n1981 Honourable Mention, Photography, Concordia University, Faculty of Fine Art Group Show\n\nARTIST’S STATEMENT\nAndres Vosu\nMy earliest recollection for my love of making handmade creations, dates back to kindergarden. I built a truck out of toilet paper rolls and a tissue box. Also, during show and tell, I willfully misrepresented my stuffed alligator as the quarry of my uncle, a fictional great hunter. A white lie, a prop and an audience, started my career in storytelling.\nToday, as an artist, I still love to create things and tell stories.\nMy works allude to human emotion, frailty and vulnerability. I use visual elements such as figures, objects, icons and text, to varying degrees. When I use a singular element, such as in a text collage, I am depicting an inner space rant. When I place two or more elements within the frame, I intend to show the interplay between human activity, ideas and the environment.\nI mix media. Using collage, matte medium image transfer, paint, crayon and pencil, I attempt to integrate craft and content with every stroke, rip and line. Also, past flirtation with film and writing influences my use of text and scene creation.\nI create to have a voice. My art is a sounding board used in reaction to the good, bad and intolerable imposed upon me by the inner and the outer worlds, in which I live.\nThe process of creation gives me a refuge so that I can decompress from the stresses of life. Creating art is a journey of my own making, and the passion of creating sustains me through all other journeys.
