March-April 2014: FORGIVENESS

 by Lorie Lee Andrews
Hot and Cold
etching–aquatint–stencil, 2011

by Lorie Lee Andrews 

Lorie Lee Andrews, an artist and bookmaker living in Carmel, is a 2012 graduate of Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis. She says, “This image refers to a philosophy that a friend shared with me, comparing life events with water temperatures. When both temper-atures of water come out of the same faucet, you can’t stop one by plugging the faucet and still hope to enjoy the other. In the same way, in order to experience life’s joys, we must be willing to be open to painful exper-iences as well. They all come from the same source, just as the hot and the cold come from the same faucet. This image exploits my passion for obsessive doodles and tiny details.” See more of her art on her website.
