ANDREIALEXIM

The pieces are built taking as a starting point geometrical shapes, so as delimited by edges, exploring the relationship between empty and content. The major influences of this project are the work of Richard Serra with architectural metal structures placed in indoor and outdoor space, the use of black and white, the colors and the abrasion of the paint, the aging of the object in space and time and the use of unexpected textures. It was also influenced by the work of architects and designers that explore the two and three-dimensional objects, the minimalism of the '60s, the emergence of minimal art and exhibitions as "Primary Structures".
