Julian Voss-Andreae is a German-born sculptor based in Portland (Oregon). Starting as a painter, he changed course and studied physics at the Universities of Berlin, Edin- burgh and Vienna. His graduate research in quantum physics involved participating in a seminal experiment demonstrating quantum behavior for the largest objects thus far. In 2000, he moved to the USA with his passion for art rekindled and graduated from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 2004. Voss-Andreae’s sculpture, heavily influen-ced by his background in science, has captured the attention of the news media, and museums and collectors in the U.S. and abroad. Recent commissions include a large-scale outdoor piece for the new Scripps Research Institute in Florida and a sculpture or chemistry Nobel laureate, Roderick MacKinnon, at Rockefeller University in New York City. Voss- Andreae’s scientific as well as his artistic work has been featured in several publications, including Nature and Science.
