Andrea deBruijn is an artist and printmaker originally from Calgary, Alberta. Her practice combines traditional and digital print methods, drawing, photography, and installation. She earned her BFA from Concordia University and was selected for the 2014-2015 Studio Practicum in printmaking at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. She has been an artist in residence at the Kala Art Institute, California; Spark Box Studio, Ontario; and the Skaftfell Centre for Visual Art, Iceland.
At the heart of deBruijn’s work are themes of memory, nostalgia, and the traces of things left behind. She imagines printmaking as an avenue for the collection of traces and is interested in the narratives and histories that these fragments evoke. Memory and nostalgia underlie ongoing projects where she contends with ideas of home, belonging, and being in-between. Curious about the traces of home we carry with us, deBruijn uses print media to explore the ways that we inhabit and remember intimate spaces and exterior landscapes.
