Exhibition: NO-MANS LAND
Gallery: CSULB School of Art, Gatov Gallery East
Alice Andreini is a student pursuing and MFA in Drawing and Painting but her path to this point is much different than the average student. She was actually teaching painting classes and she decided she wanted to take that a step further by getting her master so she can, hopefully, begin teaching at CSULB.
Alice’s work can almost be described as an altered reality. She paints landscapes with a new perspective and color scheme. Alice calls this “abstraction.”
The meaning behind her work is that’s she wanted to achieve an art form that strayed from “representation.” Alice wanted to master and be able to teach a painting style that did not involve simple replication. She wanted something that diverges from imitation and wanted to do recreation.
I enjoyed Alice’s work. I believe is was very beauty and unique. My favorite part was the color schemes she chose for each painting. They were bright and contrasting.
