Gretchen (Andrus) Andrew

London-based, American artist Gretchen (Andrus) Andrew started painting in San Francisco after becoming convinced that the internet can teach you anything. Her hybrid practice combining cutting edge technologies with traditional oil painting has received attention from The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, The V&A Museum, The British Film Institute, The Lumen Prize for Digital Art, The British Arts Council, and The San Francisco Chronicle. In 2012 Gretchen was selected to be part of Google’s “Glass Explorer Program” based on her interest in using the hands-free-wearable technology to share her artistic process.  Films recorded through wearable technology link the moment of her painting’s inspiration with their creation in the studio. Her work and research explore how sharing and structuring data impact the viewer’s relationship with and ability to make meaning from her paintings. She trains in London with the artist Billy Childish.
