ANDREA EHRET

Andrea Ehret's ethereal paintings draw on her studies of Art and Art Therapy practice, using intuition, expression and gesture as tools for self-transformation. Each of Ehret's paintings follows the flow of energetic light and shade to create a balanced, harmonious, meditative whole. In this way Ehret considers the act of painting to be a healing process.

Her intuitive approach is influenced by Eastern philosophy.  Ehret considers each painting an expression of an inner world – a meditative process in which the paint is layered with her own internal charges depicting her emotions and feelings. These conflicting emotions coalesce in painterly abstract creating cosmic dreamscapes. Each painting offering a dream-like experience.

Andrea Ehret studied at Prešovská Univerzita in Slovakia and Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem, in the Czech Republic. She has been included in numerous exhibitions in US, NYC,  UK, London, Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany, Prague and Italy and collected heavily internationally. 

Ehret has also been the recipient of awards including The Red Dot Miami Award , GlobalArt Awards Tokyo, Caravaggio International Prize Master of Art, Milan , etc. 

Also in 2021 & 2022 she was selected as an artist-in-residence at Chateau d'Orquevaux, France as part of the Denis Diderot Grant Award.

 

'I paint my own world, my life… I throw myself out there but there is this longing for a dream-like experience where everything is possible and perfect harmony exists.'
