Working in a style she refers to as pseudo-raw, Allegrone produces complex, abstract works awash with cyclical themes of destruction and rebirth. Through successive layers of paint she is able to suggest tangible concepts in the atmospheric “environments” which populate her paintings. Fascinated with the unknown, Allegrone paints in the hopes of stimulating exploration of the unfamiliar realms of life and the subconscious. “You never know just how the paint will dry,” she says.
A native of Massachusetts, Andrea Allegrone studied Illustration at Rhode Island School of Design before moving to Illinois to pursue a MFA in Painting from Bradley University. Allegrone has shown in galleries, museums, and art fairs throughout the United States including Chelsea, (NY), Manhattan, Sacramento, Chicago, Miami. She recently participated in a Biennale in Italy. Her work has appeared in several international juried publications and was featured on the cover of the 2003 hardcover edition of New Art International.
