Andrea Gutierrez ’20

Ceramics, Mr. Mess

ARTIST STATEMENT
My name is Andrea Gutierrez and I have grown up half in Newcastle, Maine, and half in St. Croix, USVI. This unique living situation has been invaluable to the culmination of the experiences that make me who I am. I would say my work is loosely based on some of the things I have seen in both places; my work is largely in cool tones since I have always felt drawn to the ocean, and have been sailing and swimming for a big chunk of my life. Since most of my work is thrown on the wheel it has been difficult for me to continue making things, and quarantine has forced me to alter the way I interact with the clay. Also, I think the feelings I am trying to invoke from those who view my art would be similar to those felt underwater; serenity and calm.
