Andreas Rutkauskas is originally from Winnipeg where he completed a BFA at the University of Manitoba. In 2003 he moved to Montreal and obtained an MFA at Concordia University, where he now teaches in the Studio Arts department. Through the use of photography, video and other media, his work is largely concerned with landscape in response to shifting technologies. His latest project, Petrolia, was developed during a yearlong research endeavour with the Judith & Norman ALIX Art Gallery in Sarnia, Ontario. His projects have recently been exhibited at the ODD Gallery (Dawson City, Yukon), TRUCK Contemporary Art (Calgary, Alberta), and the Foreman Art Gallery (Lennoxville, Québec). His work has been supported by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
