Andrew Weatherill is a Melbourne based artist who was born in Port Moresby PNG in 1972. His art practice addresses ideas surrounding the exploration of looking and the role the shifting nature of perception plays through site-specific installation art. His artworks focus on the shifting point of view as a means to question perception, location, and subjectivity. His sight specific installations engage the viewer to experience the different parts and bring them together in a personal way. Minimalist art theory, in particular the light and space movement of the 1960s and 1970s based in Southern California informs Weatherill’s research.
Trained as a printmaker his art practice oscillates between analogue, digital and spatial positions that extend the nature of contemporary print practice. Weatherill has worked as a curator and is a published arts writer. He has exhibited nationally and internationally in exhibitions such as Out of the Matrix, RMIT Gallery, Melbourne, 2016; Squirrel on a Plate, c3 contemporary art space, Melbourne, 2014; and A Tale of Two Cities: A Duet of Hong Kong and Melbourne, Hong Kong Visual Art Centre, Hong Kong, 2013. His works are held in numerous collections including the State Library of Victoria, Trükimuuseum Estonia and RMIT Gallery.
