Andrea Ehret - Underwater Woman
In this exhibition, Ehret presents a new series of singularly expressive mixed-media paintings and delicate works on paper, in which the artist explores journeys of reconnection-with-self, through the harnessing of memories, metaphor and subconscious symbolism.
A concern for self-rejuvenation and authentic expression underlies this body of work in which Ehret draws on her own sense of femininity, as well as broader feminine archetypes, Jungian psychology and Greek mythology.
Vivid explosions of colour and gestural brushstrokes are interlaced with Sumi-ink and subtly reflective tones to create uniquely expressive paintings which are at once ethereal, intense, therapeutic and healing.
