Featuring poetic, three-dimensional drawings from both natural and man-made objects, Mari Andrews' work represents the beauty of marginalized materials.
Mari Andrews’ sculptural work incorporates a collection of personally found treasures. Acorns, seeds, rocks, lichen, rust, pigment and leaves are carefully combined with annealed steel wire or metal panels creating distinct forms. Andrews cherishes each found object and allows the spirit of the object to direct her work. Due to the contrasting textures and patterns of her materials, Andrews’ work creates a textured wall installation bursting with interesting shapes and peculiarities. The artworks change throughout the day as light dances across the wall creating elusive shadows that expand behind each piece. Simple wire structures fold around each other exemplifying their playful personality.
