Artist Statement:

Andre is a voyeur, an observer. She gives us a glimpse into very private, unguarded moments. Her figures convey intense and deep feelings not normally shown/shared, they’ve let their guard down. We ask, “Do I know her? Who is she? Is she me?” We want to look away when we invade their space, but Andre makes the composition and color so compelling, that we will continue to play in spite of invading someone’s privacy. Andre divides up the composition so that we only see part of what is happening. She gives luscious details in some situations, and obscures important information in others. The work is the page of a novel, rather than a short story.
