Andrea Jane Springer
The universal use and exploration of the human form in art has always been an undying fascination for me. The way people seem to respond to the aesthetics of the figure was a complicated puzzle composed of different pieces of both personal and general psychology as well as philosophical content, all wrapped up into one simple representation of nature. My work reflects this idea and exhibits the varied connotations and responses people have to what is not just a depiction of another human, but is also a projection of themselves. The figures in my work are a dialogue between not only one person and another, but also of one within themselves, and by pushing the process of self discovery and connection, I hope to bring the viewer to reevaluate their role and experience in the human condition.
