Andrea Cermanski’s work is a conversation in color inspired by the intricacies of our natural world. Extracting her palette from nature, her work embodies the delicate interplay of light and color, texture and form. While working, she intuitively synthesizes memories of the land, sky and water, allowing something new to emerge–a metamorphosis. The culmination results in capturing the essence of a place vaguely familiar to us all. Similar to the excitement of recognizing familiar images while watching clouds, her work seeks to grasp the contemplative eye of the viewer.
