Andrea Lee Nelson

Stories can be constructed from what is cast away.  The central materials utilized in my assemblage and collage compositions are not purchased new or created, but identified amongst the broken, discarded, and abandoned.  The known and unknown past of these objects build layers of significance.  It is my aim to express facets of these layers and generate intrigue through their arrangement.

Influences include professional work in archaeology, archival research, museum collections management and exhibit design.  My art is also directly informed by my rural Alaskan landscape.
