Andersen Woof lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland. Originally trained in landscape architecture (RISD) and urban design, Andersen is passionate about form-making and fascinated by the emotional impact of physical spaces. Within his work, Andersen constantly looks for ambiguous and absurd narratives that reflect the complexities of humanity, and he investigates what it means for people to live simultaneously with joy and pain. As an Asian and gay immigrant living in the US, Andersen’s practice is strongly influenced by his personal life journey as he explores themes of solitude, relationships, fear, violence, and desire. Andersen has recently exhibited at Acappella Gallery (Naples, Italy), Fortnight Institute (New York, NY), A.I.R. Gallery (New York, NY), and Maryland Art Place (Baltimore, MD). He has several upcoming exhibitions with 1969 Gallery (New York, NY), Semiose (Paris, France), Mothflower, and more. Andersen is a recent grant finalist of the Hopper Prize, and his work has been featured in ArtMaze Magazine, Booooooom, and Mepaintsme, among others.
