Andi Steele is a site-specific installation artist. Her work is designed to interfere with space, shifting movement through and perception of a particular area. She attaches multiple lines across existing spaces to alter function and appearance. In her most recent works, she has been constructing volumetric forms that guide the viewer through the spaces and, in some instances, create new areas to enter.
Steele has exhibited nationally, most notably at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia in Atlanta. Recent exhibitions include: Canted, Burroughs Wellcome Gallery, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC, 2011 (solo); Place, Cultural Arts Building Art Gallery, University of North Carolina Wilmington, Wilmington, NC, 2011 (solo); Focus, ArtPrize, Grand Rapids, Michigan (2011). In 2012, she installed solo exhibitions at the City Gallery at Chastain in Atlanta, GA and at the Cameron Museum of Art in Wilmington, NC.
Steele lives in Wilmington, North Carolina where she is an associate professor of sculpture at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
