The next chapter

Greetings,

It has been a long time since I’ve made a post on WordPress.  I’d like to share what has happened these last six months with Parsons and my family.  Things have been very rocky, and I am doing my best to keep going with making art and living in New York City.  Towards the end of my first year of graduate school in Parson’s MFA Fine Arts program my Father, Dr. James Andrew Sapala passed away from brain cancer.  I loved him very much, I still miss him and dream of him often.  His ceremony was beautiful and many friends came to give love.  A few months later my girlfriend and I broke up.  The pain is absolutely awful and I have ups and downs all day.  Sometimes I can see clearly and other times I am incapable of keeping myself together without crying.  It was the hardest decision but the right decision.  I am going to yoga and eating well.  I am also taking this time to get away from smoking cigarettes.  Here are some pictures of: places, art pieces, people and projects I am currently working on.

Good new stuff!

I have so much new work to share with you! I have been hard at work in the Parsons MFA art program. They have a killer metal shop and wood shop. I am trying to integrate those new materials into my sculptures. It has been such a privilege to be here in NYC studying art with a fantastic group of artists. Check it out.

Good news!

I have some great news to share with you all. I have recently started my graduate program at Parsons The New School in New York City. It is a pleasure to study and make new work with all of the different artists from all over the world and to get a chance to work with the incredible alumni teaching and practicing here. Here are some new photos from the last chunk of the summer as well as my most recent piece titled “The Labyrinth of King Minos.”

Kind regards,

Andrew James Sapala

The Prisoner

Dear friends,

I am very proud today to share with you my newest sculpture. It is a wall-mounted piece entitled “The Prisoner.” I have been playing with this idea of a creature that lives within a human host for many years and this is the first version. Mixed Media, 2016. Check it out.

The Road

Hello internet friends and art people. I’ve been working with Puppet Kitchen again but this time for a large production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. On the side I’ve been busy collaborating with my girlfriend’s show Public Cemetery, chipping away slowly at the new skulls and a new painting. Check it out!
