Alice Andreini is majoring in set designing at California State University Long Beach by finishing her MFA in the School of Art’s drawing and painting program. She also wants to become a teacher at California State Long Beach. On her free time she enjoys poetry and hiking.
Alice uses dark and light pastel paint to help distinguish different details in a scene. Her art is painted on a grid sized format.
Through her art, Alice is aware that nature is mostly covered by man made objects. She wants to convey that man’s creation was not always there and show the beauty that is hidden beneath the modern world. Her art shows appreciation for nature because people seem to take for granted the world’s resources.
I liked the message she was trying to convey in her art. It is important to be aware of the natural resource the world provides for us. Her exhibition helps remind people that they should take care of the world and it’s resources. I like how the nature is depicted in light colors while the architectural parts are mostly depicted in dark colors. This helps me recognize the nature hidden beneath.
