Two established artists with their own recognised practice combine their own extensive knowledge of materials and skill of application. Colour pallets, placement of form and decisions about the paints own materiality and movement are negotiated to bring this suite of paintings together, giving a sense of excitement, coming together and completeness.
Living in the momentary beauty, being present and awake.
The potency of pigments, the siennas, cadmium oranges and the gold textures evoke feelings of glowing auras and joyful moments.
I had so much fun riding this wave with Andrea and look forward to many more.
With a natural curiosity for the creative process Andrea’s practice is multifaceted and includes painting, sculpture, installation and jewellery making. She is known for her joyful use of colour, layering of paint, building up surfaces often to a point where the two-dimensional becomes three dimensional.
References to place and home often appear in Andrea’s work through the use of shapes, form, light and shadow. The viewer is invited to enter a world of reminiscences, remembering, happenings and places.
Andrea has exhibited widely, both internationally and at home in Australia. Her work is held in both international and national collections. She holds a BA in Fine Arts with Honours and works as a Gallery Manager for Yarra Sculpture Gallery and an Art Mentor for Arts Access Victoria.
