“This is magic for the 21st century.”
Jeanette Andrews is a contemporary illusionist and artist who specializes in creating interactive sensory illusions, possessing a contemplative take on the art of the impossible.
Andrews presented her first magic show when she was four-years-old and began performing professionally at the age of six. Her dedication to her art never wavered and as a full-time performer, she has performed for thousands live and countless others on television. Andrews has given over 850 performances across the United States at museums, theaters and universities, special events and private parties, as well as lecturing on the nature of illusions.
Hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists today, and nationally hailed as “an inspiration,” Andrews has staged hundreds of performances at museums, theaters and universities across the United States, including sold-out and standing-room-only crowds at the Museum of Contemporary Art and Birmingham Museum of Art. She is the only magician worldwide known to be awarded an artist residency, including being a High Concept Labs Sponsored Artist and Artist in Residence for The Institute for Art and Olfaction. “My vision is to take the art of illusion back to a high art, with the prestige it held in the 1800’s by bringing it back to the arts sector and presenting contemplative works,” Andrews states. She crafts one-of-a-kind performances, drawing on her studies in philosophy, psychology, and art creating a unique experience for the audience. She fuses these influences into an elegant and fun performance that creates lasting memories.
Illusion is Ms. Andrews’ life’s work and her performances have been praised by PBS, The Daily Mail, the Chicago Tribune, and NewCity. Her work is far more intellectual than pulling a rabbit out of a hat: Andrews uses sensory anomalies and scientific oddities to bridge everyday life to a special, heightened world.
