Andrea London has always been a poet of the eyes.
Her portraits of men, women, and children from various ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds are the very definition of intimacy. Her images loosen the floodgates of empathy and erase ‘’the Other” from our vocabulary of swirling categories.
All of these portraits are invitations to a deeper communion. They deserve the same attention great paintings warrant when you visit them in the world’s great museums.
Andrea London is a master at reminding us that we’re not doomed to be wandering souls. There’s a common humanity at play all around us if we only learn to look for it. There is no “Other” because, as her portraits eloquently remind us, we are all related.
