About the Artist
Part of the PMA's Circa series of exhibitions showcasing contemporary art, this monographic exhibition will feature newly created work by the Brunswick-based artist Andrea Sulzer. After an early career working in plant sciences and botanical illustration, Sulzer has earned critical acclaim for a body of drawings and prints that investigate the material and conceptual concerns of graphic art. This exhibition will present a diverse range of Sulzer's recent creations, including large, colored pencil drawings that plumb the relationship between the material marks and paper support, and representation and abstraction, as well as woodblock prints that create complex surface topographies through multiple layers of ink. Sulzer's innovations continue with works that push the boundaries of two-dimensional drawings into three-dimensional, sculptural forms.
Circa is a series of exhibitions featuring the work of living artists from Maine and beyond. Generously supported by S. Donald Sussman. Corporate sponsorship is provided by The VIA Agency, and media sponsorship is provided by The Portland Phoenix.
