Andrea Alonso is a painter who works with oils. Using abstract and geometrics forms, she recalls, “… non-existent and provocative spaces using different sets of plans.” The style is a highly individual variation of abstract expressionism, one in which Mexican cultural forms can be identified. Alonso was born in Monterrey, Mexico, and in “Neighborhood” we see the simple adobe walls and bright colors of working class casas.
But the style expands beyond specific cultural identifiers, emphasizing the universality of visual abstraction in highly developed compositions of pattern and form. Alonso suggests space within these constructs, and starts to establish a sense of place not commonly seen in abstract painting.
“My art represents places that can only be in the imagination and are simply not possible in the physical world. My technique is oil on canvas and my ideas come from around me. I like to break down what I see in forms which I consider attractive, using vibrant colors to accentuate form.”
Currently, Alonso is working on interior design projects, and various private commissions. Her artwork will be featured in Art Yellow Book #2 2016, by CICA Museum. Alonso’s paintings have been exhibited at Revelry Boutique Gallery in Louisville, KY, and the “O” Gallery in Nashville, TN.
