In some of Andrea's canvases, one can probably detect a sway of Mark
Rothko; On the subject matter, her leaning to the past, mythology and
psychic archetypes perhaps reveal her sympathy to Carl Jung. Such a
combination seems to generate rather interesting effect inviting to
the intriguing "meditative" experience. Not surprisingly though,
considering that meditation, dream, myth and art are deemed to have
the same roots in the human psychological constitution.
