Andrea Harper's figurative work explores the nuance of perceived identity through the sculpted form. Her work has most recently been displayed at the Den Gallery in Austin, TX.
Primarily focused on presenting sculpted figures in tableaux, these sculptures range from mundane displays of domesticity to scenes of suggestive intimacy, while concentrating on the idea of self as a performed character. Through the sculpted form, I am interested in what it means to be a figure on display, to be a receptacle of observation, and what it means to view Art as Voyeur. Inspired by selected poems, pictures of my family, and consumerist fashion, I hope to capture the nature of human interaction under observation, "self" as a means of theatre, and the surreal and shifting nature of identity.
