Eyes Closed

Andrea Hupke De Palacio
Featured Artist

What is abstract to you? Personally, its the innermost thoughts and feelings of an artists. Its being creative and pushing the limits of what art it. Andrea's pieces here are absolutely beautiful. There is a sense of depth and life in each of these works. The colors she uses are so captivating I cant stop staring at them. To paint abstract you really have to let everything go and not think, letting the paint move you. If anything I think being an abstract painter is more difficult then lets say a realist artist. Mostly because as a realist, they are painting what they see, detail for detail. An abstract artist is making everything up, even if the subject matter is recognizable the paint application is 100% up to the artist, they become free to explore. Andrea is a very talented artist and LOUPE is lucky to be able to feature her.

Color Me Bold

Andrea Hupke De Palacio
Feature Artist

I have always had a warm spot in my heart for abstract artists. Their art is so full of life and original. It is always refreshing to see something new, something that has never been done before, something that can never, and will never be replicated. This week's artist is Andrea, a truly fine artist. The first piece is my favorite. The colors are so brilliant and full of life. Using the organic lines to break up the bold colors makes this piece so interesting. I adore what Andrea said in her interview about her method, she simply tells her self "do not think about it, go and do it." Many artists should learn this lesson and just let everything go and create from the heart. Find out more about Andrea in the Feature Artist section.
