Andrew Saftel (1959- ) lives west of Knoxville, TN. He works with multi-media on wood, sculpts as well on wood and metal and also works on paper. The artist's collections of old letters, historical, documents and found objects serve as fodder for his compositions. His carved, scored, painted and collaged wood panels are a fusion of elements that Safter sets adrift in a sea of e color. His works are represented by galleries in Nashville and Knoxville, TN and in Atlanta, GA and are in a number of public and private collections.
