Artist Highlight: Andrea Rich – From Woodcut to SculpturePosted: August 17, 2011
Since 1980, internationally recognized woodcut print maker and artist Andrea Rich has traveled the world observing wildlife in their natural habitat. Madagascar, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Africa and Europe are some of the places outside North America that she has visited in search of interesting subjects.
“…(S)ometimes the most striking feature is the form or posture of the animal,” Andrea explains on her website, “When the form captures my eye, I find it most pleasurable to let go the consideration of color or composition and the animal’s relation to the surrounding, and simply concentrate on the form alone. Sculpture seems an excellent medium for this new interest of mine.”
