Statement

 

Andrea Abalia´s work is based on pictures of disturbing scenes, mostly inspired by romanticism, on fearful fairy tales, her own life and childhood, and the theories of the psyche such as the Freudian interpretation of dreams found in Surrealism. Through building collages and paintings, Andrea explores the expressiveness and psychological imagery of figuration (almost always girls) through constructing a theatrical scene. She contextualizes the figures in psychological places, involving the figures in magical, surreal, or uncanny atmospheres. Andrea looks to find contemporary ideas about the female figure that arise from deep emotions such as apprehension or fear.
