Press Release

Locks Gallery is pleased to announce Taking Shape, an overview of Edna Andrade’s geometric work from the 1960s through the 1980s that forefronts her studies, drawings, and sketches, alongside selected larger-scale paintings. The presentation highlights the methodical working practice of an artist who was perpetually re-working and investigating new forms. Andrade was deeply invested in shape, vision, and color, and her well-known Op Art paintings were the products of hundreds of hours of preparation. A selection of never-before-seen archival pieces reveal her lifelong, thoroughgoing investigation of the optics of seeing through process and study.
