Andrea Marie Breiling

born in Phoenix, AZ, US, lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, USA

In her work, Los Angeles-based artist Andrea Marie Breiling articulates everyday experiences in a physical form. Breiling often draws on art historical sources, such as the gesture of Abstract Expressionists. Her energetic way of working gives rise to highly abstract, intensely colored compositions that at times even seem calligraphic.

Through her painting style at the crossroad between several artistic influences, Andrea Marie Breilinghas been building for several years now a work including different methods and means of painting, toraise a sense of awareness of the medium, which sheaims to reinvent and to reshape, overgoing traditional hierarchies. Breiling’s work in a kind of historical expressionism in which the pictorial movement primes, leaving large areas empty or on the opposite a saturation of irregular lines, a collection of minortads or of larger flat tints where the juxtaposition generates specific colour sensations. The works display a radical and free-use of colour and line, as well as a self-confident testing with composition, scale and substantial structure. Each painting showcases Breiling’s developed artistic bravura that, over a period of several years, has grown into a unique personal language of colour, line and form.
