Imagining Maps and Painting Dreams
All welcome! Why not come along to the preview of Andrea's exhibition, enjoy a free glass of wine and meet the artist.
Andrea’s work is heavily influenced by medieval maps which sometimes showed the material and the spiritual world as part of the same document. So Andrea records and maps personal journeys, both physical and psychic through extraordinarily detailed paintings.
Andrea McLean studied painting at Falmouth Art School and the Slade School of Art followed by a scholarship year at The British School at Rome. She has worked as Artist in Residence at Gloucester Cathedral. Her work is on display near the Map Room at The British Library. A prize winner at the Jerwood Drawing exhibition and an RA Summer Exhibition, she has recently taken part in exhibitions at Hereford Cathedral and the RA's Keeper's Room. She has given talks at The Blake Society, Ledbury Poetry Festival and the Thomas Traherne Association.
