Andrew Erdos

WSKG is pleased to partner with the Corning Museum of Glass in a series of features highlighting their past resident artists. 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 fifteen while taking elective credits at Bucks County Community College in his home town of Newtown, Pennsylvania.
