BIOGRAPHY 

 

Andrea Burgay is a visual artist from Syracuse, NY, currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Her work combines collage, sculpture and found materials to elevate the overlooked and the mundane via transformative physical processes. Through a process of adding and removing layers of handmade and collected materials Burgay presents a physical manifestation of the passage of time, destruction and decay, with a sense of potential renewal.

Her national and international exhibitions include: Unimedia Modern Contemporary Art (Genoa, Italy), Galerie Zurcher (Paris, France), and Retroavangarda Gallery (Warsaw, Poland). Exhibitions in the US include Denise Bibro Gallery (NY), BRIC Gallery (NY), and Concord Art Visual Arts Center (MA). My awards and residencies, include The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Nebraska City, NE, The Eileen S Kaminsky Family Foundation at MANA Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ, The Jentel Artist Residency Program in Banner, Wyoming and a fellowship and solo exhibition at A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn. Burgay's recent solo exhibition Mining the Ruins: The Library was shown at Northwest Missouri State University, Maryville, MO.

She is also founder and editor of Cut Me Up, a participatory collage magazine and curatorial project. Each issue presents a curated selection of original mixed-media artworks, intended for readers to deconstruct, and transform into new artworks.
