Rite of Spring Adoration of the Earth: Iris Dancers
oil on canvas, 22 x 28", 2019, $1600
Rite of Spring Series about the renewal of the earth and energy of the dance of life.
I create visual stories of woman power, nature, joy, rebirth, mystery and memory.
My current project, Visions In Motion 20/20 is a multimedia art experience inspired by the theme of the Rite of Spring, celebrating, freedom, joy, humanity and ultimately, hope. In my Light Hours series, I observe nuances of light and color reflecting from sky to water, often by combining multiple panels painted at the same location over a period of hours and seasons. I invite you, the viewer to find new ways to reflect upon our precious and dramatic environment.
Watching the smog creep over the L.A. hills got Andrea thinking about preserving nature at a young age. After receiving her MFA from Parsons New School of Design, New York, she came to live in a cabin overlooking the Puget Sound Bay where her observations of rainbows, clouds and water transform her paintings, prints and drawings. Andrea's recent projects include paintings of the Women's March and the Rite of Spring.
Her awards include: King County Arts Commission, Art Port Townsend and Helena Rubenstein Foundation. Lawson’s Public Art, Brain Beauty, Beauty Brain is installed in the Camano Island Library.
