Andrea Eis uses the photographic form as a transforming medium. Her work enlarges one's expectations of scale, creating resonant fields of halftones in a monumental play of chiaroscuro. She turns photographs of old, even ancient, art forms into works of a more ethereal nature.
Eis studied the fine arts at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, the University of Minnesota, Bedoit College, and in Athens, Greece. She has had many solo exhibitions, and has taken part in dozens of group exhibitions across America. She is on the faculty of the Department of Art and Art History at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. She has remained active in the photographic and artistic community of Detroit for decades and gives freely of her time for the community of arts.
