About the Artist


Andrew Koeling is a graduate of Ball State University. Although a scientist by education, Andrew turned his eye to creation in order to allow his mind to wander and play. Science is constrained in certain ways as it attempts to deconvolute the world into small, easy to digest chunks and makes steps to deconstruct the world around us to make difficult concepts more palatable... but Andrew felt it necessary to give himself another outlet in order to express a side of himself that he felt was being lost in the grind of the ever common 9-5. Science teaches us how to understand the world around us, but art allows us to experience it. Merely learning to know how something occurs doesn't give it meaning, and Andrew elects to try to give the beauty he sees around him greater purpose.

Most of Andrew's work is abstract, and uses a variety of mixed mediums that are atypical in two dimensional art. Using his knowledge of chemistry and biology, he attempts to use different materials than just canvas and acrylics, and instead examines the viscosity of fluids, the way certain polymers might interact with one another, and for ways to use his background to further his art. His inspirations range from the mundane to the monumental, from the biological world to that of the imagination.

Nearly all of his works have a poem that Andrew wrote in order to act as a point of inspiration to the piece, which can be read whenever his pieces are viewed in person (or by inquiry)

Artist Statement


"Movement - a deviance from form - a new direction and function - capturing a moment and allowing it to perpetuate indefinitely - allowing a viewer to view something I have created and through their own life experiences, to cause my work to mean something else to them and in turn causing a collaboration between myself and the viewer - these are my goals when I am creating art.

Art is fluid - it isn't meant to be constrained. Art is merely the vehicle to reach a higher level of thought.

But I say this not to sound pretentious - that visceral feeling you get when you view any work of art, that feeling that just says 'I like this' or 'I don't understand this' or 'I need this' - that is the important part when anything that is created is viewed and experienced. It matters little what I, or a critic, or a museum, or a gallery might say about a particular piece of work - what matters is the relationship YOU develop with it, how you view it and make it your own.

I hope in that way that we can share an experience, that you can view something that I make and you are inspired to feel a certain way. If given the chance to meet you in person, a common question for me to ask is 'how does it make you feel?'. And I hope to inspire something in you to stir, because regardless if you like it or dislike it, I want to believe that anything I make is at least making you feel SOMETHING. We should not feel constrained to what anyone tells us to think - instead, we should all allow ourselves to self reflect and decide how we individually feel and not be ashamed of it.

Overall, any type of art, whether it be visual, auditory, textile, whatever, was made for a reason - the question is, is it defined, and does it have a meaning to you - If so, the artist has done their job by awakening something in you. Good or bad, we are all looking for a meaning that can rationalize the world around us, but we need to also remember to experience it, to immerse ourselves in it... it is only though that act that we show our true courage as individuals, and one that liberates something in each of us that allows us to truly be free.
