"My artistic goal in life is to continuously

further advance my image in the art world".
Andrew, 24 has completed his education at
Florida Gulf Coast University with a B.A. in Art.
Andrew had his heart set on being an
Artist since age 10.
In 2012 He launched Andrew Corke Art LLC aka
NEW AGE ART
Having grown up on Sanibel Andrew was introduced
to artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Darryl Pottorf
and Myra Roberts. These local artists are all ones that
he admires and has been greatly influenced by.
During his junior year in Highschool Andrew was
hired as a studio assistant for Darryl Pottorf.
As Pottorf's studio assistant he has learned to use all
the adobe programs, Photoshop, illustrator, INdesign...
Working with Pottorf has allowed him to learn the
transfer process that both Pottorf and Robert
Rauschenberg came up with together. Andrew has
been experimenting with these techniques and
processes over the last few years to create his own
unique image in the art world
Around 2011 in his junior year of college Andrew began a series of 3-D recycled paintings. He initially used recycled wine corks he was collecting from restaurants and friends as a pun on his last name. This initial experimentation was an instant success.....
(not really...Andrew worked for an entire semester leading up to the juried student show to create what were the very first two recycled wine cork paintings,... Nothing made it into the show). Regardless of this first recieving of his recycled art, Andrew decided to continue making these creations he soon dubbed "Reanimations". Andrew soon after added recycled bike tires to his medley of recycled objects.
His Senior Project Show in December 2012 was very well recieved and enjoyed. Andrew has now been busy building his art collection and expanding on the techniques deployed and variety of recycled objects used.
Andrew's most recent project was building a fully three-dimensional sculpture that he dubbed a "Sculptire" because it was made out of recycled bike tires. This sculptire was created specifically to be donated to the J.N "Ding Darling" Wild Life Refuge. The Sculptire was to be auctioned off in a silent auction format on April 16, 2014.
