Artist Statement

"The idea was to convey a sense of adventure by showing the moment when an ichthyosaur battles a plesiosaur and have the creatures fight around a cutout which exposes the book’s title. This cutout would represent the opening that leads to the earth’s interior. I extrapolated on the idea by including more visuals inside circular frames." - Andy Carey

I was born in Salem, MA and raised in the Greater Boston area. My youth was spent in ice rinks, but I managed to discover my passion for making art. In 2001, I earned a BFA in graphic design with Honors from Montserrat College of Art. During the following year, I began work on the “space-ism” concept which produced the first piece for the Icon Series. The concept focuses on creating planes of space within two dimensional artwork while simplifying the imagery to geometric shapes. Over time, illustrations emerged from these paintings. The subject matter reflects my various interests. In addition, I produce traditional drawings, mixed media pieces, and work as a graphic designer. Since 2003, Andy and his wife have been stuck in the terrifying traffic of Southern California.
