Cadogan Contemporary are excited to announce ENTRE, a solo exhibition of works by Andreas Diaz Andersson. Entre is the Spanish for 'Between'. Known for his distinctly meticulous minimalist abstractions, Andersson's work is defined as much by the harmonious use of shapes and lines as the spaces left in between these. It is this exploration of negative space that lends his works such a unique quality and sensation, allowing the composition to take shape and challenge the viewer's perceptions.
When viewed from afar, Andersson's carefully considered compositions may look simple, but the complexity of his works becomes clearer upon close inspection. Made with exceptional precision and meticulous attention to detail, the works are an exploration of depth and form, hovering between illusion and abstraction. By playing with different colours and textures arranged systematically his works attain a spatially reflective quality. The physical, spatial and conceptual depth of the canvas fluctuates based on where the viewer stands, creating a constant variation of dynamic geometric patterns and deep vanishing points.
Diaz Andersson himself is between two worlds, growing up in both Sweden and Mexico. Aspects of these very different worlds are evident in his work, bringing together Scandinavian order in his technique and a Mexican sense of warmth in the colours and materiality of his works. This synthesis between cultures, creating a common ground between them, is what Diaz Andersson expresses in his works.
This will be Diaz Andersson's first solo exhibition of works in the UK, following his success in the Cadogan 2021 Summer Show.
