For this week, the art pieces that I enjoyed to see were all placed in the East Max L. Gatov Gallery and were property of Alice Andreini. She is a graduate student of Draw and Paint, from CSULB. A couple fun facts about her is that she loves to go hiking and peeping art galleries. She has been living in Long Beach for 6 years and she ones had a job at a movie theater.
Through out her art pieces, Alice has different colors; she says that she tried to tie the different colors with the time settings of the day. Like for example, blue was for a gloomy night and the gold/yellow is the golden hours of a sunset. Which I thought was very wise of her. Her paintings are about different landscapes and of her personal perspectives of them. She also said she scouted the landscapes before she actually started painting them, for example my favorite piece from her which is the blue one below, is from a golf course. She made it clear that she isn’t inspired by nature that much, but loves illusions or special constructs. Which personally I think she shows. She made the golf course look like a virtual reality. But before she created the big pieces she actually did smaller ones (which are also below.) The smaller paintings follow the same landscape concept but they don’t have any color, only black and white.
This was the only information I got to receive and I would have hoped I could have asked a bit more; I had to do something important.
