ABOUT THE ARTIST

Alice Andreini is a MFA graduate student and is approaching her last semester in school.  Alice is majoring in drawing  and painting. She is going to graduate this upcoming spring. She is originally from Minnesota and later moved to San Diego and finally Long Beach to attend school. Alice, similar to most students, wasn’t exactly sure of what she wanted to pursue as a career. At first, Alice was studying medicine but later decided to switch to theater. While studying theater, she was a set designer and she also was the one to paint the back drops in the plays. Alice has always had a passion for art but did not believe it was a stable career. Her goal in the near future is to become a professor at CSULB and wants to teach art. She also wants to continue painting. During her free time, she enjoys reading poetry.

FORMAL ANALYSIS

Alice Andreini’s art gallery consisted of large painted canvases. All of her art pieces were beautifully painted and all colorful. The way Andreini painted it made the texture really unique, almost 3D. I noticed that she used a lot of geometric shapes and all had so much detail. Her art work was supposed to resemble golf courses. She used grid like patterns to achieve it.

CONTENT ANALYSIS

Alice Andreini mentioned that most of her pieces were inspired by landscapes and nature. She also mentioned that she wanted her pieces to be more abstract.

SYNTHESIS/MY EXPERIENCE

I really enjoyed Alice’s paintings. The texture of each painting really stood out to me and I believe that was what drew my attention as soon as I walked into the gallery. All of her paintings are very unique, nothing like I’ve seen before. I personally thought a lot of her art looked similar to mosaic art.
