Nedret Andre is a contemporary artist in Boston’s SOWA district. Her abstract art focuses on ocean life within seagrass habitats. The inspiration for her gestural paintings come from being out in the field with scientists and helping with seagrass restoration efforts in Massachusetts. She received her BFA in Painting at Massachusetts College of Art and her MFA from Maine College of Art.
Nedret Andre work focuses on our natural world and the science around seagrass habitats. Her art brings light to the important role seagrass plays in our oceans health. She is fascinated with it’s role of being home to thousands of species, it’s ability to provide us with oxygen, to its ability to mitigate climate change. In her paintings, she allows for the marks and the colors to form her compositions. Each painting starts very fluid and develops as she continues working on the piece. Nedret uses washes of diluted oil paint to mimic water and layers opaque paint as she works through her abstract compositions.
Nedret’s solo shows have included: Beacon Gallery, Chashama Spaces NY, Copley Square Hotel’s Art Square Gallery, FP3 Gallery, Enso Gallery, Hess Gallery, Artlery, Boston University, and Stetson Gallery.
