Andre Petterson’s pieces are staccato moments in time, captured through the process the artist has developed involving a myriad of techniques. Often building an installation or sculptural form, Petterson then creates photographs which are combined with painting to achieve his unique compositions. Interested in light, contrast, motion, and kineticsm, Petterson’s work is an ever-evolving reflection of our world.
"Tree Line" explores the reality of climate change through elements of rebirth and hope. Working in his signature mixed media format integrating photography and paint, the artist places a line of trees above an expanse of water, perhaps a flooded river. The composition shows Petterson's technique of overlaying the image with translucent white brushstrokes, further suggesting the amorphous realm between dream and waking.
