Andrew Paul Skoda (b. 1993, Illinois) is an artist who splits his time between living and working in Austin, Texas and Chicago, Illinois. He spends too much time waxing poetic about the potential of images and their physical or representational limitations. His work is centered around scrutinizing the associations and links between photography, understanding, and memory. Subverting the romantic documentary mode, Andrew exploits photography’s distinct capacity for narrative and punctuality to transpose a subjective, fragmented, and re-contextualized understanding of the crumbling infrastructure and shifting industrial culture in the United States. He is deeply interested in the psychology of image-making, and particularly seeks to better grasp the inner-workings of how we recognize and associate with images, our environments, and those around us.
