The Alien In The Middle
Andrea received her BFA in Illustration at Rhode Island School of Design and moved to Illinois for her MFA in Painting. Painting has always been a favorite choice of expression. Andrea has shown in various places some including: Chelsea, NY; Manhattan, Sacramento; Chicago, Beaumont, TX; Ewing, NJ; Winston-Salem, NC; Lenox, MA; Providence, RI; Jacksonville, and Norfolk, VA to Jekyll Island, GA. . Her art has appeared in several international juried publications and has a cover painting of the hardcover 2003 edition of New Art International. Andrea has been described as “self-taught” in New Art International. Several have called Andrea’s abstract works "raw" yet raw and naive translates to "unschooled" /traditionally untrained or basically “unaware.” Consequently, Pseudo-Raw is the movement that Andrea calls her own.
“This project seems especially promising considering the gas crisis, the significance of the automobile, societies’ values, and the state of the economy.”Andrea Allegrone
