Born in 1982 in Bolzano, Italy.
Lives and works in Florence, Italy.
Andreas Senoner centres his sculptural research on main themes - at once both symbolic and material - such as metamorphosis, heritage, and stratification. In his sculptures, he investigates the relationship between the individual, the ever-changing context in which he lives, and all the elements of that transformation.
For his artworks, Senoner selects and uses unique materials - mostly from animal and plant origins - always considering their history and evolution, and giving value to those factors. Testifying the strong legacy of the context where the artist was raised, wood becomes the preferred material, a key natural element, a place where memories collect, where you can read traces of time - before, during and after the artistic process.
The artist recalls the traditional sculptural processes with a contemporary perspective based on his message, resulting in a fascinating language strictly connected to the concrete nature of the chosen materials and topics narrated, which is able to build a dialogue and induce parallelism with the memories of the viewer.
He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and the Saint Charles Fine Art Department in Valencia, Spain.
He attends performance and sound poetry classes with artist Bartolomé Ferrando.
In 2006 he was granted a scholarship for Minneapolis College of Art and Design (Minneapolis, USA) where he attended sculpture classes from Kinji Akagawa with whom he delved into his wood carving technique. From that moment wood as a material of expression has become a permanent feature in his artistic research.
