Artist Profile Andy Schuessler

Born in Chicago in 1955, Andy Schuessler received an MFA from the University of Southern California. Throughout his artistic career, Schuessler experimented with kinetic and electro-mechanical construction, creating assemblages that join disparate, everyday objects including ironing boards, light bulbs, vintage lampshades, and barstool legs. Some of these electro-mechanical assemblages invite participants to activate a mechanism in order for the object to perform a certain function. The ready-made component of his work blurs the distinction between high and low art.
