About Rebekah Andrade

Through re-imagined environments and composed structures, my work explores the many definitions of the ideal form. My interest lies in our ways of shifting and manipulating concrete and ambiguous elements within our inhabited environments. Inspiration is drawn from a negotiation process within the methods and boundaries of subject and medium. The neutral space that I create in allows the evolution of geometric combinations, application of paint and construction of shapes. Within a minimalistic approach of transitioning layers, ambiguous lines and contrasting palette reside harmonious moments.
