Studio Gallery Intern Review

“The Center of the Universe” by Andrew Acquadro is a representation of one of the most famous places in the world: New York City. The mixed media painting is abstract and includes popular symbols that portray the Big Apple. Tall magenta buildings arise in the background while a bridge leading into the city sits in the foreground. The light-up cross walk symbol is humorously placed too, next to road signs and billboards. A heart for the “I love New York” tourists sits at the bottom of the bridge. The bold color palette is fitting for the lively and extraordinary place. The smells and the sounds of the city practically erupt from the painting, transporting the viewer right in the heart of New York.
