In her paintings, Andrea Morganstern uses dots as building blocks to create imagery that ranges from minimalist abstraction to complex biomorphic forms that fuse human, animal and botanical elements, exploring themes of unity, impermanence and the cycle of creation. She also uses the dots to suggest communication between forms. Her work incorporates the recurring pattern in nature that appears in neurons, tree branches and river networks as a major motif and structural element.
Andrea Morganstern’s work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions
in museums and galleries throughout the United States and internationally, including the Islip Art Museum in East Islip, NY, the Attleboro Arts Museum in Massachusetts, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Pontiac, MI, the George Segal Gallery at Montclair University and Bartok 1 Gallery in Budapest, Hungary. In New York City her work has been exhibited at Shelter Gallery, Winkleman Gallery and Capla Kesting Fine Art. Her paintings are in numerous collections, including the Masterworks Museum of Art in Bermuda and the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art in St. Joseph, MO. Morganstern was born in Queens, NY and studied at The School of Visual Arts and the New York Academy of Art. She lives and works in New York City.
