Come explore many materials and techniques in this playful and intuitive demonstration with Andrea. See how you can mix a variety of medias and get unique and unusual results. We hope you can leave this demo inspired and ready to give yourself permission to play.
Each element of Andrea Soos’ abstractions shows a process balancing spontaneity with deliberate intent. The blithe motion of her pencil lines are too idiosyncratic to have pre-planning behind them, yet they show no sign of hesitation; they are firm in pressure and consistent in flow. The colour markings she interweaves with them are balanced and keenly placed, yet unexpected. Soos seems to be at play in the open space that meditative presence offers. There is depth in her movement, underlying levity and risk. One gesture seems unexpected across the previous one. A line’s dancerly cursive offsets its rough density; a patch of sunlit colour bleeds raw across the paper, only to be criss-crossed with focussed, patterned markings. Soos offsets care with rawness. And while her process reflects complexity and counterpoint, she arrives easily at the precise moment between too much and too little.
