Dissolve Horizon

Artist

Name: Andrea Myers
Statement: Within my recent series of paper pieces, I construct layered pieces that become three dimensional from the process of compiling pieces of paper and fusing each piece together into a whole. Initially, I begin with screenprinting open fields of color onto each piece of paper, and then I randomly glue them together, creating a rectangular stack that I then tear into by hand. As I tear into the piece, color combinations emerge, creating a spontaneous composition that is derived from a subtractive process. The tearing process allows indentations or negative space to form, which becomes the focal points of the pieces. I am interested in constructing pieces that emulate a weathering process, paralleling everyday subtle shifts, such as paint peeling or sidewalk cracks. The small fractures found in everday life resonate the human presence within the larger landscape, suggesting a vulnerability that is akin to an ever changing environment.

The Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority today owns the largest contemporary collection of local art in central Ohio. All of the pieces are on display in the Greater Columbus Convention Center, the Hilton Columbus Downtown and the three Convention Center parking garages. The collection is the result of a communitywide call for art, overseen by a committee of community members and implemented by collection curators James and Michael Reese of Reese Brothers Productions. The artists represent the diversity of the Columbus community, cutting across age, gender and race.
