About the Artist

Andrew Mount, an English artist and educator at Saint Mary’s College of California works in a range of media to reframe social and political elements through participatory art practice. 

His oeuvre of media includes installation, collaboration, participation, digital media, painting, printing, video, and drawing. Mount’s approach to art practice is through participatory and socially engaged themes. Current works explore images as a meditative reification of signifiers. These signifiers reframe empirical structures of finance (such as greek glyphs); investigate the assumption of divine rights, and heighten the connections of royalty in reference to capitalism. Mount’s collaborative work uses custom software paired with anachronistic hardware to present installation art that recodes the aesthetic profile of current political events. Mount gained a BA(Hons) in Painting from the University of Reading (UK), an MFA in Combined Media from Hunter College, CUNY, and an EdD in Interdisciplinary Studies in Art and Art Education from Columbia University. Mount’s work has been shown in the UK, Bulgaria, Germany, and the USA. Since 1997, he has lived and worked in the USA and is currently located in the Bay Area.
