Andrea Moser is an artist and visual story teller. Her art uses the power of the visual image to ignite imaginations, evoke emotions and capture universal cultural truths and aspirations. Andrea grew up in Europe and moved as an adult to Australia. The experience of two cultures made her realise that perspectives and meanings have evolved over time based on our cultural background, experiences, beliefs and values. She is intrigued by these differences and uses it for inspiration in her art. Hence she creates meaningful art for thinking people.
The 2000 year old encaustic medium is her chosen paint because she likes to challenge the preconceived views of this ancient technique and use it in a contemporary way. She does this by combining this ancient technique with modern techniques. Her art work utilize encaustic medium, pen drawings, gilding and oil paints.
The image evolves through applying multiple materials,
layer by layer. There is a tactile quality to her work as she builds up layers of wax while “painting” with her blowtorch.
Andrea always loved to draw and paint but life circumstances never allowed her to pursue art as a career. Instead she focussed on a career in marketing and administration and raising a family in the new world.
However after some life changing personal experiences she decided to pursue art seriously and to develop it into a career. She joined an art group and volunteered in art administration roles, exhibitions and competitions. She began to exhibit regularly and took part in art competitions.
She has won the Judges Choice award of the Petit Pieces competition at Aspire Gallery for her painting 'Deconstructed Magpie' in 2019. Andrea was finalist in the Rotary Art Spectacular, Royal Queensland Show, Lethbridge 20000 and other competitions.
She held her first Solo Exhibition 'Deconstructed Lifecycles' in 2020, at Aspire Gallery, Brisbane.
