Andrew Drummond Biography

In the late 1970s, Andrew Drummond emerged alongside Bruce Barber and Darcy Lange as part of an important group of New Zealand sculptors whose practices were conceptual, political and international. Drummond’s performances of the late 1970s challenged traditional ways in which artists had previously worked, exploring humanity’s complex relationship with technology and the primeval natural world.

Since the early 1980s these themes have remained constant in his work, with Drummond completing major private and public works throughout New Zealand that are impressive in their engineering, construction and the beauty of their materials.

Described as ‘artist and alchemist, ‘ Drummond was senior lecturer in sculpture at the University of Canterbury (1992-2003) and appointed a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to sculpture in 2006.

Drummond has work in the collections of the Auckland Art Gallery, Te Papa - Museum of New zealand, Wellington; and the Christchurch Art Gallery.
