Event description

Description

Poet Wallace Stevens wrote “[The artist’s] function is to make his imagination … become the light in the minds of others. His role, in short, is to help people to live their lives.”

“This “life” is what I want you to see in my art- brimming and fierce. Luckily, I have able to experience this connection first hand - an incident that affected me deeply. Last summer, at The Prague International Art Fest, where I was exhibiting, a fellow artist in her late fifties approached me with great enthusiasm. She told me how deeply my art had affected her. She had recently recovered from a coma where she had been diagnosed as clinically dead, but remarkably was brought back by medical staff and gone on to recover fully. During this resuscitation, the woman explained, she saw a bright light and experience the most intense feelings of love and unity. She then explained to me that my art reminded her of this light and feelings. She told me there is such life in my art, the one we are all longing for. I burst into tears and so did she. We wept and embraced in brilliant comfort. What more could an artist, a human being wish for?”

Andrea Ehret’s art style has always been ever evolving. However, after taking on many roles as an artist, mother, and partner, her passion evolved. She was more fearless and more playful. She felt a tremendous strength, now evident in her paintings as she experimented with more colors and various techniques. Her work incorporating 24kgold dust and her own authentic technique, resulted in a new, luminous collection, transporting her audience through a dreamlike experience.

This connection between inner and outer worlds is integral to her identity as an artist. While her art is inspired by her own experiences, circumstances, and emotions, it remains like an open-ended question: one only the viewer themselves can answer. Her sincere and authentic art allows the viewer to reflect on themselves while immersed in a world away from their own.
