Since 2000 Ginger Andro and Chuck Glicksman have been working as an artist team, creating over 45 multi-sensory installations for galleries, museums and universities in the U.S. and abroad. Their works are sculptural environments that envelop and elicit visceral responses from their viewers through the use of sculptural form, video projection, mirror reflections, shadow play, sound and scent. Ranging from meditative interpretations of place to political satire and societal absurdities, their works are drawn from a shared narrative using their life experiences as art material. Ms. Andro’s artistic vision developed from her passion for art and science. Her experience with dimensional painting and sculptural constructions have become integral to her exacting and disciplined approach to installation, fabrication and natural perfumery. Mr. Glicksman’s artistic development grew from his experiences with film as art. His experimental filmmaking, video and multi-media productions are the basis for his non-narrative image-making, sound and staging sensibilities. The collaboration brings individual skills and backgrounds together into a unified voice that balances and energizes the work; by sharing an underlying aesthetic, they merge their intentions into a synergistic whole. Ginger Andro studied painting with Alan Siegel and sculpture with Vyto Kasuba, and continued to study at The School of Visual Arts, Parsons and the New School in New York. She was the gallery director at East Coast Arts and curator/co-founder of Group 29 in NYC. She has taught at The College of Mt. St. Vincent, Seton Academy, The Art School at Old Church and St.Thomas Aquinas College, and she holds certifications in natural perfumery and aromatherapy.Chuck Glicksman studied film with Ken Jacobs, Saul Levine and Larry Gottheim at The State University of New York at Binghamton, earning a B.A. in cinematography. He studied sculpture with Nat Kaz at the Arts Students League, and he continued study at the School of Visual Arts and Parsons. His work experience includes being a co-founder of Group 29 and twenty years as a producer/director of multi-media events.
