Artist Statement

I’m highly influenced by the Surrealist movement, the symbolism found in the figurines from the Neolithic period, the indigenous/tribal arts and since my first degree is in fashion design, those two aspects can also be in identified in my art.

Andréa Acker is a visual artivist from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She studied art at Maharishi University of Management, where Transcendental Meditation is part of the curriculum. For her, making art is a spiritual practice.

Ancient artists from many traditions ritually painted repeating patterns. Their goal, like the artist herself, was twofold: first the spiritualization of the piece, and second, the purification of Self through meditative labor.

Andréa is highly inspired by the Surrealist movement, the symbolism found in the Neolithic period artifacts and the indigenous/tribal arts.

Through her art, the artist honors the Goddess worshipping societies and inspires the viewer with a Neolithic Goddess centered worldview; with the intention of returning to a more peaceful and compassionate world.
