This past week Andrea Wan opened a solo show, "Mirror Mirror," at Rabbit Eye Movement Art Space in Vienna. Bon in Hong Kong and raised in Vancouver, Wan is a Visual Artist and Illustrator with a passion in storytelling. She mostly works with ink on paper and sees her work as a visual journal that reflects her thoughts and experiences. Her drawings combine traditional narrative aesthetics with eerie and surrealist qualities, depicting a world with great sensibility. She finds inspiration by looking outwards to observe her surroundings such as people and places, and looking introspectively into the obscure corners of her subconscious. She believes that our internal and external worlds simultaneously influences and reflects one another, communicating using clues and metaphors, our subconscious dropping hints into our waking life, causing moments of synchronicity. Her new series, Mirror Mirror, explores the dialog between these two coexisting realms with curiosity.
