A.S. Mastroianni’s work is a result of a rarification of process and dissection from earlier explorations within her painting process. This painting project references years of her personal catalogue, prior analysis, experiment, discovery of color, and of form arising from chance. Experiment, control, and chance reveal the unseen result yet to come when singular elements are exploited and closely examined from the original process. Specific rules and decisions prior to the moment of creating the paintings set the groundwork, with the foundation of the paintings beginning with color choice and color making.
A.S. Mastroianni designed her major as an undergraduate through the Interdisciplinary Studies Program at CW post LIU in 1996, which then allowed her to study at Studio Arts Center International (SACI), in Florence, Italy. Mastroianni received her MFA from Brooklyn College in 2014.
