NEEDLEPOINT, COLOR, TEXTURE
Los Angeles-based artist Andrée was born and raised in New Orleans and later moved to Seattle for about 16 years. New Orleans’s vibrant cultural life influenced her use of color and patterning, combined with the nuanced palette and textures of the verdant Northwest. She continues to explore color and texture through the vast cultural diversity of Los Angeles. Carter’s method of collage incorporates paper, fabric, thread, and needlepoint, all adding to the physicality of her work. Andrée received an MFA from The University of New Orleans and BS from Loyola University in New Orleans (Cum Laude). She also studied art history in Florence, Italy through a summer program at Tulane University.
In addition to numerous solo and group exhibitions, most notably a large-scale installation at the Contemporary Art Center of New Orleans in 1998, Carter has been honored with painting fellowships from the Bau Institute held in Otranto, Italy, and Virginia Center for Creative Arts; the recipient of a solo exhibition from the New Orleans Painting Competition, and several awards from juried shows in Los Angeles, including the Artistic Selection Award from the Korean Cultural Center for the 24th Annual Juried Competition, and the Museum of Art and History, Lancaster, CA where her work received 2nd Place, Best in Show. Her most recent award is Artist in Residency at Ucross Foundation in Wyoming for September 2019. Her work is included in numerous private and public collections.
