Awards: Nebraska Residency Award

Having worked in the construction industry most of my life, in 2006 I began to challenge my existing paradigms about who I was and how I could engage life more fully. Drawing from life experiences, I developed a creative process that revolves around intuition. Working within the mediums of drawing, painting, digital and mixed media, the discoveries I have made in the studio have fostered my desire to experiment with images and materials in an immediate way. In the spring of 2011 I received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Expanded Media from the University of Kansas. Thus far, my work has been published twice in New American Paintings and has been shown in New York's First Street Gallery.

Dates of residence: Apr 29, 2013 - May 10, 2013

Andrew Zimmermann was born and grew up in the Washington, DC area, primarily Northern Virginia. While in Prescott, Arizona, at college, he made the acquaintance of several artists connected with the photographer Frederick Sommer. Exposure to the photographs of Sommer and to the works of his contemporaries and predecessors played a major role in developing his understanding of photography and of visual art in general. Andrew works with a large-format camera that conveys images onto 8x10 inch sheet film. His photographs are gelatin-silver contact prints, created by pressing the negative between sensitized photographic paper and a sheet of glass, exposing the materials to light, and developing the paper in traditional darkroom chemistry. This method preserves the highest level of detail from the negative, leading to razor-sharp definition and a rich palette of tonal values.
