Andie Paradis Freeman

Raleigh, NC

"Creating dreamy visions of hidden places, connecting us to the world and each other."
"Andie Paradis Freeman’s work engages traditional realism and contemporary abstraction to evoke a space in time that is frozen and dreamlike."

The subjects of my paintings are cherished and natural objects hanging and moving in a fantastical setting as if the viewer just missed meeting the users. Still life is used as a tool for narrative, giving a glimpse of a life lived by using artifacts of daily life combined with the richness of nature. We live in a disposable world that makes us critical of ourselves, and others, as we reach for the next object to fill the void of human interaction. In this time of rapidly changing lifestyles of modern communities, the art reflects the importance to explore what it means to be human and what mark we leave for current and future generations through daily rituals and interaction with nature.

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I am very inspired by music while I work and what I listen to reflects my mood. I listen to a lot of jazz, bluegrass and swing while I work. Lately, I have listened to a lot of Reggae which gives me a peaceful and joyful mindset while I work."

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"I hope that when someone sees my work, they are a little curious and want to ask questions about the subject and the dreamy settings. My hope is that it makes them feel comforted, even if they are not sure why."

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"I love working in my home studio, but working in my public studio and outside (plein aire) definitely has some funny obstacles and surprises. I used to visit my parents in Hilton Head and get out early (5 AM) to paint before anyone else woke up. One time, I went out and got set up to paint and started painting for about an hour. As I was working I noticed a 12 foot gator was getting ready to cross by me to move across the road. I swiftly moved back to my car and sat inside until he had moved himself past my easel and into the woods. Since I had lived in Hilton Head most of my life at that point, it didn't frighten me, but I did have a healthy respect for his turf."
