Andrea Caldarise is a painter and collaborator inspired by exploring memories and happenstance conversations. Public spaces are visceral, storied environments—her art practice explores the psychological connection between landscapes and people. Each painting invokes a singular place, inspired by referencing the emotions, sights, and textures of an experience. Caldarise’s art focuses on connecting audiences with cityscapes and common, shared spaces within by capturing the experience of discovery, recreating a place through memories and imagination. Her work borders on magical realism, borrowing from observations, historical research, and surreal themes, Caldarise's artwork reveals the commonplace and extraordinary narratives in our environment.
