Medium: sculptural collage and collage works on paper

Andrea's work combines collage, painting, sculpture and found materials to elevate the overlooked and the mundane via transformative processes. Through adding and removing layers of handmade and collected materials, her works present a physical manifestation of the passage of time, destruction and decay, with a sense of potential renewal.
I work with collage and decollage methods to create works on paper and sculptures that elevate the discarded and overlooked. I integrate fragments of handmade and found materials to create works that reference entropy, cycles of rebirth and the possibility of hope and transcendence.
I primarily use paper and fabric, materials whose disintegration and decay speak of the passage of time and the possibility of redemption for the obsolete.
My current body of work takes these concerns in a personal direction. These works reference the walls and domestic spaces of the homes that were part of my childhood and adolescence. They are portraits of places where physical destruction and violence led to stagnancy and decay. They “mine the ruins” what’s been lost, connecting fragments to rebuild.
ShinYoung An has created her own art form of portraiture juxtaposing ordinary, routine tasks against a backdrop of current news articles that feature a variety of social, politcal, environmental issues and events.
She is from South Korea and obtained her B.F.A in South Korea. She has also studied at the Art Students League of NY, U.S. and Cercle Artistic de Sant Lluc in Barcelona, Spain after receiving her M.F.A. in painting from The Graduate School of Figurative Art of the New York Academy of Art in 2001.

I am interested in using patterns and human figures to develop my own artistic language about the process of personal self-discovery. These patterns (and sometimes abstractions) will be used to metaphorically represent inherited behavioral and personality traits.
My paintings speak about Emotions, order & chaos, perfection & imperfection. I like to represent the ambiguous process of finding yourself and tracing the lines of your own life.

Medium: Multi-Media Artist
Born in New Castle, PA
Currently in Miami, FL
I’m a multimedia artist emphasizing the intersection between nature science, and aesthetic. I merge photographs, hand painting and at times UV light. For the last several years my focus has been on exploring scientists who have been researching coral with hopes of creating healthy coral reefs.
You won’t find another artist who strives to challenge their selves as much as I do. I go beyond to make sure I exceed my own expectations. MY work is not only creative and original but it also shares current significant issues that affect the quality of life.
