Andrea Gregson's art practice uses sculpture and installation to explore the form of manmade objects and their constructed environments, in particular, the subliminal codes of behaviour hidden in collections of objects.
Over the last nine years, the scale has shifted to collections of miniature objects placed together as installations inside wood boxes. Each sculpture exists as two separate parts, the pared down and physical exterior and the miniature complex interior space accessible by means of peering through tiny gaps and holes.
The use of miniature scale represents themes of escapism, nostalgia and voyeurism, where objects are both protected and imprisoned in a state of stillness. It has also informed curatorial projects, 'The Miniature Worlds Show' and 'Workshop of Hereafter-Diagrams, Models and Prototypes' as a means to contextualise her art practice.
From June 2011 Andrea has been invited to be the Bronze Fellow at Chelsea School of Art for a six-month period. This new work in bronze, constructed from a collection of broken parts from natural and man-made forms, uses the formal qualities of sculpture to explore the collision of objects and their position in time and space as they pass through her life.
The sculptures are formed according to the dynamics of play and an attempt to draw out a coherent form from the remains of a persons' movement though time.
