Andrew Lyman

Andrew Lyman is an Atlanta-based artist. He received his BFA in Photography and Painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2016 and is now an MFA candidate at the Ernest G. Welch School of Art in Design at Georgia State University. His work features obsessive documentation and recording of his life events and interactions with the world through the camera lens, writing, video, drawing, and collected ephemera. His carefully arranged installations of massive amounts of media give space for viewers to synthesize, memorialize, and cherish time. The work is motivated by a need for visibility of the Queer community in Atlanta, a group of people who’s experience and existence is historically erased, limited, and made inaccessible to the public. The work grasps onto memory and attempts to provide understanding to an experience that would otherwise be buried in time. Lyman’s photographs are a part of the permanent collection of the D Museum in Seoul Korea. His work has been shown in Atlanta, Savannah, New York City, and Seoul. Lyman has been published in New York Magazine, NEON Magazine (Berlin), Zeit Campus (Germany), and Picture Newspaper, among others.
