Portrait of Andrew Godsalve
Andrew Godsalve

Andrew Godsalve is a visual artist from Hinton, Alberta. Andrew is developing a practice of geo-photomontage which involves working with digital and photographic photomontages that are influenced by geological structures and processes.

Andrew’s ArtScape Artist-in-Residence project entitled Camera Sigillaria includes the construction of large photomontage installations compiled from photographs taken during the residency and assembled in ways inspired by the geological forms and processes he encounters in Joggins and other sites relevant to the Coal Age. His work will also “reflect upon coal mining, quarrying and tourism” and “the relations between geologic and human histories across different times and spaces.”
