Andrea Snyder Artist Statement
I want to create something tangible out of the hidden and non-verbal places within me. I try to capture the elusiveness of the moment -using marks, imagery, & materials from my African, South Asian, and Middle Eastern travels, textures from natural fibers, fabric, found materials, and my papermaking. I like both vibrant & earthy colors, plus elements that elicit the powerfulness and potential of the human mind. I love the complexity of combining seemingly incongruous elements made by both man and nature.
