Biography

Michelle Andrade’s whimsical drawings mine mundane conversations and internal monologues, presenting fragmented phrases and thoughts amid decorative patterns. Frequently drawing onto lined or graph paper to accentuate the intimate, diaristic quality of her ramblings and reflections, Andrade expresses anxieties, particularly about health problems; in one of her drawings, rounded cartoonish letters spell out, “Are there scholarships to rehab?”, while in another they read, “Now Comes the Biopsy.” Both are set within tight patterns of brightly colored spirals, flowers, and other designs.
