"Andrew Logan: Locus - A Convergence of Planes"
2006-05-05 until 2006-05-30
Booker-Lowe Gallery
Houston, TX, USA United States of America

Andrew Logan's abstract figures, in marble, wood, and bronze, will be featured at Booker-Lowe Gallery, beginning Friday, 5 May, through Friday, 30 June. The opening reception with the artist, will take place from 5-8 p.m., Friday, 5 May. The show will include fifteen recent works completed specifically for this exhibition, including his abstract female forms carved in stone or wood, then cast in bronze. Logan, 42, has exhibited in group and solo shows in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, as well as in New York and Pennsylvania.

A self-taught artist, Logan currently maintains a studio and foundry in Trenton, NJ, where he sculpts and casts his own pieces. He is currently scheduled for a solo show in Dubai in January, 2007, and is at work on a commission for six life-size pieces for a new home on the exclusive Harbour Island in the Bahamas.

After completing high school in rural Australia, Logan spent seven years traveling throughout Asia and Europe. During that time, he lived with indigenous people in several countries, in addition to having lived among Aboriginal people in Australia. He then returned to Sydney, quickly establishing himself in the art scene there. In 1996, he was awarded an artist visa (the so-called "Alien of Exceptional Ability" visa) by the U.S. government, and began working in New York. In 2000, he moved with his family to Bucks County, PA, apprenticing at a fine art foundry to master the bronze casting process before establishing his own studio and foundry in nearby Trenton, NJ.

Ashley Crawford, editor of the Australian Art Collector and one of Australia ‚s leading art critics, recently wrote of Logan‚s work, „When Logan works in Carrera marble, the most traditional medium of sculptors for aeons, it melts under his touch, flowing like soft lava. He makes the hard - bronze, marble, and timber - soft and beguiling. At times it is clearly sexual; the female form is rendered with lustful relish, but also with an abiding respect for beauty. Logan‚s art is an act of alchemical magic, of transformative poetry, one all too rare in the day and age of mechanical reproduction.‰
