Rebekah Andrade

I have an obsessive-compulsive nature and use painting to investigate and find humor within my unattainable need for perfection and control. Deep inside my layered process of geometric combinations, surface, color, and repetition are the formal abstractions of my life. I investigate and re-negotiate methods and boundaries of subject and medium with a painterly approach. With transitioning overlapping layers of structures weighed by scale, tone, and shadow, I manipulate the area so that its presence can become expressive.
