andrea bolley Artist Bio:

THESE ABSTRACT PAINTINGS OF ANDREA BOLLEY CONTINUE HER INTEREST IN USING LAYERS OF PAPER NOT AS TRADITIONAL COLLAGE BUT AS A DRAWING ELEMENT . THE PAINTINGS DRAW TOGETHER HER USE OF PAINT WITH THIS UNIQUE PAPER COMPONENT . OVER THE YEARS SHE HAS USED MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF PAPERS BUT IN THIS SERIES SHE USES WALL PAPER OR WRAPPING PAPER THAT IS BLACK AND WHITE STRIPPED AND REWORKS THIER FORMAL DESIGN ATTRIBUTES . BY FOLDING THE STRIPPED PAPER AT VARIOUS COMPLEX ANGLES SHE MANIPULATES THE CONNECTION OF LINE,FORM AND VOLUME CREATING THE EFECT OF AN OPTICAL ILLUSION . THE RESULTING NEW GEOMETRICS ARE SET AGAINST ANOTHER BACKGROUND FIELD OF STRIPES OF THE SAME MANUFACTURED PAPER . AT INSTANCES THE LINES SEEM TO RECEDE INTO THE BACKGROUND AND SIMULTANEOUSLY APPEAR TO BE EMERGING FROM IT. SHE FURTHER SUBVERTS THE FORMAL MANUFACTURED ASPECTS OF THE ORIGINAL PAPER BY PAINTING OVER THE EXISTING STRIPES WITH RICH BLACK AND WHITE PAINT. HIGHLIGHTS OF PIGMENT CREATE AN EVEN MORE SENSE OF DEPTH AND SPACE , AND COMPLETELY ALTAR THE PAPER'S INITIAL PROCESSED FEEL TOWARDS A MORE PAINTERLY ONE. HISTORICALLY STRIPES HAVE DIFFERENT MEANINGS TO THE VIEWER . IT IS THE HAND MADE ONER THE MAN MADE THAT IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT IN THESE ' PAPER PAINTINGS " /Users/andrea/Desktop/andrea_bolley_uneasy_beauty-1.pdf/Users/andrea/Desktop/andrea_bolley_uneasy_beauty-1.pdf
