Working with wood, fabric, printmaking, and pen and ink, Myers created a number of sculptural pieces which reflect the dynamic layered landscape.

Andrea Myers explores the space between two and three dimensionality by combining forms of painting, sculpture and textile practice.  Myers received her M.F.A. from the Fiber and Material Studies department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2006.

“In response to my time in the woods, walking the levee and trips into the city, my work opened up to new processes and during the residency, I felt able to take creative risks and try new ideas influenced by the varying landscapes…once you arrive to the woods, time immediately slows itself and the days relax into a peaceful pace, allowing you as an artist to create and reflect on your own artistic terms and timing.”
