Statement

BIO:
Andrea Bergart lives and works in New York City.  She received her BFA from Skidmore College and her MFA from Boston University. Bergart received a Fulbright Scholarship to Ghana, West Africa and recently has participated in residency programs in Senegal through the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation and Kenya through Tilleard Gallery.  Her work has been exhibited in New York, California, New Orleans, Boston and the UK and most recently was included in the Academy of Arts and Letters.  Andrea’s paintings reference diverse visual traditions including African textiles, urban fashion, outlines on playing fields and basketball courts and geometric abstraction. 

Statement:
Two current bodies of work—paintings made in my studio and those done on cement truck barrels and sails—operate with varying tenor but a similar intention: to reference the human condition in the midst of urban decay and fecundity through variations of design, color, and form. My work samples visual information from my environment in New York. Cracks in the sidewalk, mysterious liquids in the gutter, metallic wrappers, sun-faded signage of store windows, and subway track debris. Textures, color relationships, and patterns inform my studio practice and reference the collective psyche and trace of human activity in urban landscapes.
