Please join us for the opening of Andrea Coleman’s solo exhibition, “Draped in Color”. Coleman uses digital painting and collage to explore the unreliable contents of memory. Referencing photographic family memorabilia and clippings, Coleman challenges the idea of authenticity through use of aura and portraiture.
Andrea Coleman is an artist based in Chicago who utilizes the various medium of oils, acrylics paints, magazine clippings and digital prints. Inspired by her suburban upbringing, animation and various mural artists, her work currently investigates the interconnectedness of aura and narrative. Graduated with her BFA at Columbia College Chicago, she is currently the Idea Award recipient of the Art and Art Activism organization and Hollis Sigler Manifest Award. She is also currently an artist resident in Chicago Artist Coalition’s HATCH Projects.
