Audrey Ferris

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

I am a painter living and working in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I graduated from Michigan State University with a BFA and Specialization in Painting in 2015. Since that time I have shown work at Lions and Rabbits Art Gallery, Via Design Inc.'s downtown office, The Winchester restaurant, and had solo exhibitions at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts as well as Ferris Coffee Cafe. I create abstract art with acrylic paint on canvas. My work is made in response to daily life inspired by the things I see, feel, and experience. I communicate my interpretations through layers of mark making and floods of color. Discovering and manipulating color is one of the most satisfying aspects of painting to me. Simultaneously, I am drawn to homogeneity and monochromatic color schemes. In my work I debate these conflicts by painting with vivid colors and challenging myself with purposeful absences. I hope to achieve the difficulty of simplicity while maintaining intrigue of variety.
