About The Artist
I am as affected by the frog I saw yesterday, sitting on the lit globe of my outside light as I am by the distant memories of a gray hut I once saw in China or a blue mosaic tile I saw years ago when I lived in Jerusalem." - Andrea Dasha Reich
Born in Prague to Holocaust survivor’s Andrea Dasha Reich’s early life was subjected to a continuum of Communism and all of its restrictions. Her dissident Father’s fight against the regime would eventually result in the entire family being evicted from their homeland. Leaving behind the dark world of Czechoslovakia, and suddenly finding herself arriving in Jerusalem, a place saturated in sunlight, and vibrant bursts of colors than spanned farther than the eye could see had a profound affect on the young Andrea Dasha Reich, suddenly and almost magically she was free, free to explore the brightly colored be-jeweled landscape that her new world provided. She attended the world renown, Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, and her passion for Art was born and would later become her way of life.
At the age of Nineteen, Andrea Dasha Reich found herself leaving Jerusalem and migrating again to a land far away, this time the destination was America, landing specifically in New York, Tribeca, became home and the place where she would develop a wonderful career in the Fashion and Design industry, while she enjoyed her career, her passion for creating Art was beckoning in a strong and loud voice that she could no longer contain, the ideas were developing in her minds eye, it was time, she opened her first studio and dedicated her time and energy into pioneering, crafting and developing the Resin and Latex Artwork she is known for today.
Inspired by the organic shapes and planes in nature, Reich's artworks are a woven interplay of rich color spectrums that explore the depth and intimacy of the abstract world we live in. Her works are an indication of how this prolific multimedia artist sees the world; astonishing beauty, magnificent power and the intense awe-inspiring complexion in nature of which the life and creation of color is born. Through the use of pure pigments and layers of epoxy resins, her works seem to let her visions breathe with motion and fluidity... the crystalline paintings pull you into a mysterious realm of curiosity and surprise.
