ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Ashley Addair is a visual artist, a new mama, and a nomadic adventurer.  She is a modern dancer and holds track and field records in the state of Illinois.  If she weren’t a painter she would be a scientist. Ashley’s paintings have been collected in Italy, Mexico, Canada, Australia, and the throughout the U.S.  Her favorite color is yellow ochre neon mustard.  

ARTIST STATEMENT

For me, art-making is a means of learning through the creation of metaphor.  I am interested in pattern and fabric as an investigation of culture and narrative, color as a vehicle for the exploration of nuance and perception, and material as a connection to history.  With these elements I am cultivating a capacity to be aware of the sacred in daily chores, motherhood, family relationships, and seasonal rhythms.
