A word from the artist: “Since my childhood, colors have always been fascinating for me. I discovered this colorful fluid art style called acrylic pouring. It encompasses an intensive knowledge of density, viscosity, and transparency of the paints and pigments. The paints interact with each other to form amazing “cells” which can be further enhanced by silicone.
The mesmerizing patterns, fantastic color combinations and various techniques within pouring.
With this art style and a multitude of pouring techniques, I created cosmic dreamscapes with layers of emotional depth, landscapes that prompt us to reflect upon the viewer’s identities and paths, and the marvels of the sea that extend an invitation to make the viewer dive into their own introspective realm.
I invite the viewer to embark on this visual and intellectual journey of creative visions and imaginations. Come with me and enjoy this captivating display of colors and artistic narrative that they guide you into a world of wonders.”
Born and raised in Transylvania, Romania, Andrea moved to the U.S. in 1999. She studied art in Glendale, AZ. Andrea lived and worked in Jamaica, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Her artworks have been exhibited in the Caravanserai International Cultural Center, Xamar Gallery, the U.S. Embassy in Tashkent, and Falls Church Arts and Mosaic Arts in Virginia.
