The work of Andrea Kvas is based on the deconstruction and analysis of the painting object.
This analytical approach leads the developer to define the fields of action within you can move, in
both instinctive and emotional ways, experimenting different techniques and approaches.
In the exhibition Atacai, the artist focuses on formal and conceptual steps that have characterized
his research in recent years, adopting them as an object for a breakdown and a further put-to-test.
Kvas choose to re-problematize the style and the “solutions” that gave life to the works presented
in occasions such as Laboratorio (Brown project space, Milan, and MACRO, Rome) solo
exhibitions Campo (Museo Marino Marini, Florence) and Boy with bucket (Chert, Berlin) and the
project Plantel Renovado (O’,Milano), reinterpreting and bringing them back to an open
dimension.
The impromptu distinguishes the practice of Kvas, whose works are organisms made up of
tensions of matter, stratification; chromatic relationships, spatial evocative and expressive.
It is on this physical plane, unmediated, that the viewer is invited to engage with the works in their
individual and contextual specificity.
