Andrea Vargas - STATEMENT
Working on large-scale pieces has become one of my signature strengths, and the way I enjoy giving passion to the art.
I was born and raised on the California coast. Urban environments rich with murals and diversity influenced my early palette and affection for community histories, and vibrant illustrations. After I received my BA from the University of California at Berkeley in the area of rhetoric and public discourse I began to travel between the desert landscapes and coastal cities. Since, I continue to produce artwork and installations that focus on ecological relationships, light and aspects of transformation.
Exhibit History - The Oakland Museum of California, The Ontario Museum, the David Richard Gallery, the Santa Paula Art Museum. The Agriculture Museum of Ventura County, the Ventura Museum of Art and History.
New drawings and paintings are available through Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
