Published by Locks Art Publications
Philadelphia artist Edna Andrade (1917-2008) was revered for her mastery of Op Art technique and hard-edge geometric abstraction. Despite a long career that included many gallery and museum exhibitions, the great breadth of her drawings is only now emerging as the individual works on paper are catalogued. Andrade’s total extant body of drawings spans over 70 years and ranges widely in subject and medium. In 2010, Locks Gallery presented a selection of approximately 40 works on paper using a diverse range of media including acrylic, charcoal, graphite, ink, pastel and watercolor. Many of the drawings were shown for the first time and reveal surprising insights into the different periods of the artist’s career, this was expanded upon in the accompanying publication.
