Vargas, Andrea – Ode to the Hummingbird (Pastel on Paper) 34″ x 26″
34" x 26"
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. We are pleased to represent her paintings in Scottsdale and Santa Fe.
This painting is entitled, “Ode to the Hummingbird”. It is pastel on paper. The painting is subtle in coloration and beautifully framed. She says of her hummingbird paintings: “The hummingbird is a phenomenal entity to behold, but the prose of Pablo Neruda provoked my newest drawings — each one pays homage to swift movements and the racing heartbeat.”
Andrea thoughtfully says of her work:
“Life is precious, fleeting and bound to an exquisite network of life. Plein air painting encourages the artist to be mindful of her surrounding and because it is a discipline of painting within the outdoors and with the elements of nature. The most abrasive being the sun, the wind and the rain. Ultimately, taking time to create in nature has facilitated my strongest insights as a designer, along with patience and intuitive mark making.
