New Work

This summer I have been focusing on the last studio class I will ever take for my degree. Sad but feeling great at the same time (I have been in school ever since I was five with no real breaks in between — I am EXHAUSTED!), I am preparing for a “pre-thesis” show that opens at Desotorow Gallery on September 18th, 2009. Here are some examples of the things I have been working on.

Incorporating gouache paint and the laser cutter I am working with layers to achieve a transition from natural to stylized pattern. For this show I am only using the Kudzu vine or “the vine that ate the south”.

About AGrayHarper

Andrea Gray Harper is an artist, designer, and maker who incorporates embroidery, screen-printing, and digital techniques into her handmade objects. A native of the Southeastern United Sates, Gray’s exposure to tropical plants and a lack of winter season garnished her love for the outdoors, plants, and bright colors. In 2007 Gray received a B.F.A degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in Textiles and Fashion. Since then she has attained an M.F.A in Fibers, participated in various solo and group exhibitions and trade shows, won Second Place in the Annual Juried Artist Book Symposium at the ACA Library of SCAD, and received the Ben C. Morris travel scholarship to study abroad in Cambodia. Today Gray is working on a variety of projects, from photo styling to garden design and event planning.
