I have observed Andreas for decades as he has continued to develop and refine his craft towards the making of remarkable art. The commemorative wall located within the Nanaimo Museum is literally the cornerstone of the $110 million conference center and museum. In this context, Andreas art speaks for and too a whole community and will by default be always considered as a legacy for the future citizens of our island paradise.
Andreas is both patient and persistent — he is also a meticulous craftsman. The demands of such a large sculptural format might allow for one to overlook some of the technical detail inherent in these projects. Choosing and working with 50 ton pieces of stone, the artist must also accept responsibility of care and due diligence. Andreas does so with utmost professionalism.
