acrylic and molding paste on canvas
3' x 4' (framed)
Although they are abstract in nature, Andrea considers her paintings landscapes - as each one is inspired by a specific place and time. Water features prominently in her work, as does sunlight, which is why each piece features iridescent pigments. Her technique involves building up the canvas with molding paste before paint is even added. She then applies paint in many (many) layers, scraping and carving with various tools as she goes. She is always trying to achieve depth in her work and her hope is for each viewer to feel compelled to travel through the layers, ﬁnding a personal memory with which they can connect.
