Traver Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new and recent work by mixed-media artist, Andrea Dezsö.
Known for her hauntingly beautiful drawings, prints, and cut-paper works, this new body of work began as an antidote to the loneliness that accompanied the pandemic. Like many others, Dezsö, found herself searching for the comfort of community while beset with the intense uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. From the depths of this feeling rose a series of Companions and Protectors brought to life by Dezsö’s intimate dialogue with various materials. Japanese paper, watercolor, woodblock, and pyrovitreographs (one-of-a-kind monotype prints) gave rise to this richly poetic and mythic work that invites viewers to imagine their own stories.
