andreas buisman

andreas was born in tyrol, austria, in 1964. he grew up on his father’s construction sites in various parts of the country where he began to understand the importance of material properties and the logic in constructing things. he also developed a sense of belonging which does not depend on a sedentary lifestyle. andreas is at home where the materials speak to him.

between 1982 and 1993 he got distracted by his skiing talent which took him across the globe as a fully certified ski instructor and racing coach. during the same period, in the summer months, he began restoring an old farmhouse in waldviertel, the idyllic northern part of austria. it ultimately became an open-air studio and a sculpture garden where many friends congregate, once every year, on collectors day, to celebrate art and its relationship to community and land.

in this period many different art projects from various materials found their homes in private residences, complemented by exhibitions of sculptures made of granite, steel, glass, acrylic glass and concrete.

around 2000 andreas’ interest focussed increasingly on austrian weathered granite boulders and australian basalt, both reflecting his deep relationship to the two countries. in another vein, balancing the demanding physical work of sculpting stones, photography emerged as the lighter part of his art practice.

andreas is also part of the professional fabric of the arts: in 1998 he joined the austrian association of visual artists and 2007 he became member of the wiener kuenstlerhaus. over the years, many stone sculptures found their way into public and private collections, highlights being the fred hollows memorial in bourke, nsw, australia, the anzac memorial in bombala, nsw, australia, and lately an ensemble of sculptures for the snowy valleys sculpture trail.
