Marisa D'Andrea


BFA Student

Major: Printmaking

Graduation Year: 2017

Artist Statement:

Throughout the process of developing an artistic practice, I’ve found that I have far more questions than I have answers. I have grown to enjoy living in the space between the proposal of a question and the discovery (or synthesis) of a conclusion – this is the space where conversation happens, a space of exploration, the space inhabited by Schrödinger's cat, neither living nor dead until a conclusion is reached.


Marisa was born in Pennsylvania the same year the Pokemon franchise was created, and is now a graduate from Maine College of Art and a part-time food runner at Ri Ra Irish Pub. She currently lives in Portland, Maine, and hasn't eaten breakfast in awhile. She's wondering what she should do about her website that she doesn't use, and has at least 76 colored pens & markers in her backpack.
