Stephen Andrews & John Greyson On Message Video Still, 2006, 9:30 min
On Message is an analog animation using the same set of drawings to tell four different versions of the same story: the emotional fallout of two witnesses to a police shooting; a musical about groovy gay boys making the scene; a cop show about the chase and arrest of a suspect; and a news report about soldiers on leave in Iraq.
Stephen Andrews was born in 1956 in Sarnia, Ontario Canada. Over the last twenty five years he has exhibited his work in Canada, the U.S., Brazil, Scotland, France and Japan. He is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Belkin Art Gallery, the Schwartz Collection, Harvard as well as many private collections. His work deals with memory, identity, technology and their representations in various media including drawing, animation and recently painting.
