Andrea Vargas merges aspects of abstract impressionism with a contemporary purpose. Signature work includes life-size drawings rife with energy, dynamic compositions, and bold mark-making. Also distinct to her artistic process is the vision of the work— narratives with intrinsic symbols that revere nature and the elements.
Vargas lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico but was raised along the California coast. After she received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of California at Berkeley in the area of pre-law, she began to travel between desert landscapes and coastal cities. Since then, she continues to produce artwork and installations that focus on ecological relationships, light, nature, and aspects of transformation.
