Houston artist Adela Andea is known for transforming indoor spaces into installations that involve sensory experiences for viewers.
In Arts Brookfield’s latest exhibition, It’s Unreal!, Adela’s use of LED lights and various electronic materials will draw in the viewer and then introduce a dialogue about the interaction between people and new technologies.
Curated by Sally Reynolds, the exhibition will be displayed at Total Plaza from May 15 – Sept. 8, 2017.
Adela Andea received her Masters of Fine Art in 2012 from the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas, becoming the inaugural graduate of the school’s New Media program. Since then, her sculptures and installations have been widely exhibited in such museums and institutions as The Museum of Arts and Design, New York City, NY; Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, San Antonio, TX; Crystal Palace, Bordeaux, France; The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art, Dallas, TX; Galveston Arts Center, Galveston, TX; and The Grace Museum, Abilene, TX.
Her visionary installations have awarded her invitations to many art fairs, as well as to the Zebra3 Artist Residency in Bordeaux, France, the 2013 Texas Biennial, the 2015 International Kinetic Exhibition and Symposium in Boynton Beach, Florida, and the 18th Annual Texas Sculpture Symposium, held at Texas Tech University in 2015.
Her work has been featured on PBS, MoMA Talks, in the Houston Chronicle, art ltd. magazine, and ModernDallas, and can be found in several national and international private and corporate collections. Most recently, Primordial Garden, her monumental 15,5003-feet installation, was acquired by Texas Tech University for their permanent collection.
