'Romantic Egg'
121.8 x 91.4 cm
Ink and acrylic on canvas

During my last time in Berlin I shared a meal with my friends, Bex & Sergio, at Nobelhart & Schmutzig. Vocally local about their menu, we were served a surprising dish with an egg cream. As the server explained the course she started with a description of the chickens and how they were raised and ended the introduction of the dish by calling the egg, “quite a romantic egg.” A romantic egg? How can an egg be romantic? We took a bite, our eyes grew big, and we each exhaled, “that is a romantic egg.” It may seem silly but I’ve thought about that egg for a long time. When I was invited to create a painting based off an AI generated image I knew immediately it was a moment to paint a romantic egg; an idea I couldn’t conceptualize on my own. This romantic egg is my love for Berlin, a city I have visited frequently in the last five years. Something so unexpected, love at first bite, bold, and dreamy all at the same time that keeps me coming back for more. This romantic egg is my ode to Berlin.

    About the artist

    Andrea Welton, (b. 1988), is a painter from Half Moon Bay, CA currently residing in Claremont, CA. She received her MFA from UC Irvine. Her paintings are made in response to the lived experience of the body in nature. She considers them scores of the landscape, choreographed compositions of the landscape in painted notation. In both the landscape and the studio, she consider the use of her body, materials, and paint. Through a highly utopic lens, she asks: How does one construct a relationship with the land?

    Andrea has been an Artist in Residence at Picture Berlin, PLAYA Summer Lake, and Vermont Studio Center as well as participated in Fritz Haeg’s ongoing project, Salmon Creek Farm. Her work has been shown at galleries such as Ochi Projects, Praz-Delvallade - Unit 5, Meinblau Projektraum, Slocumb Gallery, San Diego Art Institute, Salt Fine Art, the UAG Gallery and included in shows such as the CAA MFA Exhibition at CalState LA Fine Arts Gallery, and Painting in the Abstract at Great Park Gallery.
