About the Artist: Andrew Staley Wing (American, 1931-2004) was one of many American abstract artists whose art was grounded in the forms, materials and cadences of nature.  Born in 1931, Wing grew up in an artistic East Coast family. Wing took classes at the Art Students League in New York City, where he was influenced by the burgeoning Abstract Expressionist movement. At Bard College, he studied art under luminaries Louis Schanker and Stefan Hirsch, graduating in 1955.  He moved to Laguna Beach, California in 1956 and received his MFA from Long Beach State College in 1962.
 
Wing's technique was to throw vessels of carefully mixed pigment and water solutions onto his explosive canvases.  His forward-thinking passion for conservation often drove him to repurpose found materials in his paintings and constructions.

Wing received numerous awards for work, prior to his passing in 2004. Two years later, the Laguna Art Museum hosted a retrospective exhibition of his work, "The Chances of Andy Wing."
