Hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists today, Jeanette Andrews is a contemporary magician and artist who specializes in creating interactive sensory illusions, possessing a contemplative take on the art of the impossible. She has invented a unique take on this ancient art form.
“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. I enjoy finding historic magic illusions and modernizing them for today’s audiences, where impossible feats are performed by the viewers themselves,” Andrews states.
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, Andrews has staged hundreds of performances for Fortune 500 companies, museums, and universities across the United States, including sold-out and standing-room-only crowds at the International Museum of Surgical Science, Birmingham Museum of Art, and Chicago Ideas Week. She recently completed her third series of performances for Museum of Contemporary Art, presenting “Invisible Roses,” commissioned by the museum in honor of their 50th anniversary. Combining influences not typically seen in magic performances such as immersive theater, quantum physics, and philosophy, Andrews has invented a unique take on this ancient art form. She is the only magician worldwide known to be awarded an artist’s residency, including being a High Concept Labs Sponsored Artist and artist in residence for The Institute for Art and Olfaction. Illusion is Ms. Andrews’ life’s work and her performances have been praised by The Daily Mail, the Chicago Tribune and PBS.
Andrews uses sensory anomalies and scientific oddities to bridge everyday life to a special, heightened world.
