Andrew Witkin's artistic approach is inspired by, and nearly indistinguishable from, his deliberate approach to life, work, and relationships. He refers to his shows as physical manifestations or "stopping points" of his continued examination of essential life questions, such as how one balances personal fulfillment with community responsibility.
Witkin continues to explore these ideas in a new installation created for the Foster Prize exhibition. Two corridors will lead to a central area holding items associated with work, rest and play. The installation will present a judicious arrangement of objects, some originating from casual encounters and others of great personal significance to the artist.
As part of his exhibition, Witkin will also present a series of short, relaxed performances by musicians who are friends as well as artistic colleagues on Sundays at 3:30 pm in the East Gallery
