Andrade’s abstract paintings explore new ways of communicating the relationship between form and shape. Her newest artwork is an exploration into new states of consciousness within her art practice, providing new perspectives and opportunities for evolution. Reflection on Forms serves as a neutral space to observe the foundation of her work; dismantling patterns of perfection to carve out space for imperfections and strengthening her ability to effectively communicate visually serene forms.
Through re-imagined environments and composed structures, my work explores notions of objective and subjective realities. Within the layers of geometric combinations, harmonious palettes and recurring forms are abstractions representing psychological states and our physical surroundings. Repetition is a crucial element in my work, employed as a method for balancing compulsive and reflective thoughts, and rethinking the concrete and ambiguous spaces we inhabit. Through a creative process, a visual language has emerged that drives my practice, challenging perceptions and beliefs within our internal and external environments.
