Andrew Drummond

b. 1951

Andrew Drummond attended University of Waterloo in Canada, graduating in 1976. Drummond lectured at the University of Canterbury, School of Fine Arts between 1991 and 2003. Since leaving the School he has focused on his art practice, completing commissions and studio-based works.

Drummond's art practice attends to questions of process, ritual and location while addressing the human body, ecology, and dislocated histories within the landscapes of New Zealand. His work speaks to the natural environment aiming to engage and intrigue whether through meditative sculptural installations using natural and found materials, or as large-scale dynamic kinetic sculpture.

His early practice included pioneering performance art raising environmental and political issues in the 1970s and 1980s. Since then his career has encompassed sculpture, installation, video, drawing, and photography.

As well as a number of accessible public commissions, Drummond's works are held in various public and private collections.
