The Artistic Life: Andrea Costa
My parents came home from the beach a few months ago, with the most beautiful painting in the back of their car. While on vacation, they had seen it in a gallery and fell in love with it at once. I can see why: I loved this artist's way with color and tone. I wanted to see and learn more about her and her work. Here is a little bit about Andrea Costa: "Andrea Costa’s rural roots and endless love affair with the land and water are the source of inspiration for her luminous and masterful landscape paintings. Costa approaches each painting by exploring the underlying narrative metaphor, and emotion of the Landscape. She embraces the creative process while incorporating the classical training she received at Clayton State University and perfected with years of study with Atlanta’s Chris DiDomizio, best known for his “ Old World Master” techniques. A rigorous investigation of critical thinking and innovative use of materials, working with Michael David and the Fine Arts Atelier has honed and expanded the metaphor and emotion in each of these singular and moving works." Here are some examples of her amazing paintings:
(Blue Reflections 40x50)One thing is for sure, Andrea has an amazing ability to tap into the soul of a natural landscape and accurately portray it on canvas.
