Andrew Smaldone’s exhibit shows the refined element of time derived from the observation of architecture and an extraction process. Space generates images that are related to a memory the artist had where art as a practice, as a development, or as a perception, occupies a series of room: an art school in London, and a non-profit gallery in Italy.
In the moment in which they are portrayed, abandoned of their original purpose, the architecture Andrew paints reveals that the artist has conserved a dormant memory of their history, namely, what they contain.
Exhibit: January 14-28, 2014
