Artist Statement -

My work illuminates an energetic state that exists yet is generally not seen. Movement as it is captured in space indicates pathways and an energy flow. Visualization of this movement brings to mind that which is not seen in the world but still exists.

I'm intrigued by the way simple lines can become complex structures and how complex structures can be reduced to simple lines. I choose to work in steel because it gives me the most immediate connection to my thoughts and the welding process allows me to quickly execute my ideas. The stability and the permanence of metal also gives me the capability to build with structural freedom. Steel rods can represent an single line allowing the negative space to become an important part of the sculpure and the bent steel rods create a fluidity that lets one forget that the structure is made of hard steel.

Andrea's energetic forms are like fluid, three-dimensional graphite drawings in tangible space. Sometimes a vortex of wind, other times like woven threads, her sculptural lines blend the contemporary sleekness of steel with the tactile sense of organic materials.
