About the artist:
Andréa Stanislav is a contemporary American artist, born in Chicago. She received a MFA from Alfred University, New York; and a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Andréa is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Art, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN. Her practice includes sculpture, video installation and public projects.
Andréa has received different public art orders and projects located in Barcelona, Spain; Key West, FL; Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis, MN; New York City, NY; University of Oregon, Eugene, OR; Morningside College, Sioux City, IA; and Washington DC.
Her work considers themes of harmony and deconstruction in the natural world, popular culture and, by extension, regards the sublime – realized through unexpected visual manifestations, multi media installations and monumental sculpture. Andréa also has a background in film, stage, and museum exhibit design and production — and worked as an artist for Matthew Barney’s Cremaster Cycle films.
