Andrew McPhail

Andrew McPhail has developed a multidisciplinary, layered artistic practice that merges personal reflection with a deeply considered use of materials. Focused primarily on drawing in his earlier years as an artist, McPhail’s interest subsequently shifted towards three-dimensional and performative works after moving to Hamilton in 2005. His craft-oriented pieces reconfigure everyday disposable materials while conveying a broader consideration of personal-social-cultural conversations.

Andrew McPhail was born and raised in Calgary, AB and holds a Master of Fine Arts from York University. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and in 2013 was the recipient of the Canada Council International Studio in Paris. He is a cofounder of the Hundred Dollar Gallery with fellow Hamilton based artist, Stephen Altena, and is a founding member of The Assembly gallery in Hamilton, Ontario. Upcoming work in 2020 includes projects in Canada and Germany.
