Studio Gallery Intern Review

On the second floor of Studio Gallery, a beautiful and colorful collage of paintings hang together to create the image of a calm koi pond. “Surface of a petal covered pond” by Andrea Rowe Kraus captures the serene and tranquil feeling of gazing into a koi pond filled with fish that have the most extravagant colors. The different values of green show how the fish are creating the ripples in the water while the use of contrasting colors like orange and white make each fish dance throughout the collage. Being of Asian decent, I feel a personal connection to my culture in this collage because it expresses the beauty of koi ponds that are common in Asian regions. There is a total of 12 different paintings, although none of the paintings are touching, it is clear to see what the image is. Be sure to come see this astounding collage at Studio Gallery.
