Andrew Paul Woolbright (American, b. 1986) is an MFA graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design in painting. Woolbright integrates paintings, sculpture, and video into an ongoing project about Shrinebeasts- grotesque and uncanny figurations built of tangled lovers. Using his wife and himself as subjects within his work, Woolbright has been constructing an expansive mythology that documents their ongoing transformation into moving shrines of love. Using this mythology, he examines love and sentiment, along with their political and personal relationships to individuals, relationships, narratives, and the history and aesthetics of western art. Woolbright attended the School of the Art Institute Chicago where he was greatly influenced by the work of the alternative figuration of Ivan Albright and Mary Lou Zelazny before being taught by Angela Dufresne at the Rhode Island School of Design. Woolbright has exhibited nationally and internationally. His work has been reviewed in the Boston Globe, the Chicago Reader, and the Providence Journal and his work is in the collection of the RISD Museum. He currently runs Super Dutchess, a contemporary art gallery with a focus on a tautological curation of rotating exhibits on the lower east side in New York. In 2020, he will be curating a survey show of Kathy Goodell’s work at the Dorsky Museum and an international group exhibit with Coherent gallery in Brussels.
