The mixed media assemblages of Paul Andrews honor the sacrifice and commitment made by farm workers in rural America. Using a variety of found objects - anonymous photographs, old paper, cardboard, bookbinding, cloth, glass, wire, galvanized metal, boxes and assorted natural and man-made objects - Andrews fabricates works of art focused upon the harsh realities of farm communities in time of natural and economic hardships, yet simultaneously celebrates their resiliency and sense of community which enables them to endure and outlast any such trial.

Paul Andrews has exhibited his work throughout the United States since the late 1990s, including his participation in group exhibitions held at the Bill Lowe Gallery. His work is included in the permanent public collections of The Magnolia Hotel in Houston, Texas, VH1 in New York City, as well as Falk & Ross Textiles in Kaiserstrabe, Germany.
