About the work
Amplifier is designed to serve a reflective mandala-like sculpture. The circular pattern comes from repetitive layering of a drawing of fig tree leaves. It has been reworked many times and the former flora has begun to resemble fauna (sheep or goat) and has been designed to stimulate the projective quality of a Rorschach Test. There is an inherent duality in the fig and sheep references that play on ideas of good and evil.

Andrea Marquis lives and works in the Philadelphia Metro region of Pennsylvania. She has been an Artist in Residence at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, at the Archie Bray Foundation in Montana and presently at the Fitler Club in Philadelphia as part of the Artist in Residence 2.0 cohort. She has studied at Syracuse University, The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and earned an MFA in 2009 from The New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.

She teaches ceramics, 3d design and drawing in Philadelphia and has exhibited nationally and internationally. Her work can be found in collections at the Park Towne Place in Philadelphia, Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, New York, The Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana, and Alfred Ceramic Art Museum in Alfred, New York. You can see more of her work across the street at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia for her Solo Exhibition, Matter in a Floating World, which is up until December 31st 2022.
