Andrew Woolbright, Keep on Keepin' on (2020). Oil and Acrylic on Canvas. 46 x 62 in.

Andrew Paul Woolbright is an artist, curator, and critic whose studio practice consists mostly of painting and drawing. Woolbright’s paintings appear collage-like, combining and layering disconnected subjects into chaotic and untethered landscapes, inspired by virtual experiences. Utilizing the addictive color palette of the screen, virtual spaces are mimicked with the application of these colors by airbrush and synthetically developed inks. His current paintings are proposals for a video game he doesn’t intend to make; conflating his personal experiences, art history, and visual culture into a screen-time inspired mythology. Woolbright is the founder and director of the gallery Below Grand, formerly Super Dutchess on the Lower East Side, NY, and a frequent contributor to the Brooklyn Rail.

About Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program

The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program awards rent-free non-living studio space to 17 visual artists for year-long residencies in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Its mission is to provide working studio space and community for artists. Artists are selected annually based on merit from a competitive pool of applicants by a professional jury comprised of artists and members of the SWSP Artists Advisory Committee.

The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program is the new face of the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation Space Program, developed for artists, by artists in 1991. In 2014 the program was renamed the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program to honor the legacy of Marie Walsh Sharpe and reflect the new sponsorship and commitment of the Walentas Family Foundation.
